Lynwood Gold Forsythia
Heavy Bloomer in Early Spring Brightens Any Yard
You'll know spring has arrived, once this forsythia begins to show flowers. Forsythias are typically one of the first plants to bloom…and bloom they do!
Light lemon yellow flowers all along the stems deliver an incredible show that is so welcome after the cold, short days of winter. You can even cut branches off just as buds form and bring them inside your home in vases of water to "force" these happy sunshine colored blooms. What a treat!
Easy to grow Forsythia are great larger scale shrubs used as a specimen, as a hedge or outstanding backdrops to a perennial or shrub border. Shiny dark green leaves all season long can offer some yellow and purplish fall color.
It is important to remember that the 4-petaled flowers are born on last year’s growth. The best time to do any pruning on all Forsythia is right after the flowers have faded.
Large and overgrown plants can be cut to the ground right after flowering, and the plants will respond with lots of new growth from the ground and still make flower buds for next year. Simple, and easy to grow plants are hardy from zones 5-8, and make large rounded shrubs about 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide.
For a spectacular splash of color that signals the arrival of spring, you can’t go wrong with the Lynwood Gold Forsythia. Order yours today!
