Bright Yellow Show in a Small Space

After a long, gray winter your soul craves spring flowers, doesn’t it? Sometimes, though, all of the rosy pink and pale lavender flowers so common this time of year don’t cut it. What you want is an EXPLOSION of eye-shocking color.  Forsythia Show Off (Forsythia mindia) will be like fireworks in your spring garden.

Show Off is definitely not your typical forsythia! This petite plant is absolutely covered from the ground to the tips of every stem with sunshine-yellow flowers.

Other forsythia varieties, though they may get bigger, can often get a little shaggy and become the victims of bad pruning. Show Off stays wonderfully small, so there is no need to prune it. You can have a nice, tight, compact forsythia hedge without the usual work!

The dark green foliage that follows the flowers stays plush all summer. Growing a little wider than it is tall, this makes for a nice hedgerow when planted in multiples.

These little gems are really versatile, too. You can grow them in pots on a sunny deck or as shots of color in your spring borders. Despite the name, this plant isn’t a diva. Forsythia Show Off will reward you with years of well-mannered beauty. Order yours now, so you don’t miss the spring show!

* Yellow blooms on upright branches
* Deep green leaves
* 5 to 6 feet tall
* Spreads 5 to 6 feet wide
