Gold Tide® Forsythia
Compact Shrub with Bright Lemon Yellow Flowers
Gold Tide Forsythia is a dwarf, deciduous shrub. Grow a few as foundation plants, or en masse on a slope or natural area for a more dramatic effect.
Your Gold Tide Forsythia bursts into spring with a “gold tide” of yellow brilliance so early in the season that its foliage still hasn’t appeared. The diminutive, bell-shaped flowers create quite a show as they appear in abundance amid the bare branches. Ovate, green leaves will soon fill out your Gold Tide for summer, so it presents a pleasing appearance throughout the season.
With its compact, spreading shape, your Gold Tide Forsythia typically grows to only 30 inches tall but spreads to as much as 4 feet wide. It has an attractive, mounded form if left to grow naturally, but is easy to prune if you prefer to take a hand in its shaping.
Its best flower production is in full sun, but it will tolerant other conditions and a variety of soils. There aren’t any disease or insect issues to be concerned with, and deer tend to leave it alone.
If you’re looking for a hardy, little shrub that will make a dramatic spring impression, Gold Tide Forsythia is one that is perfect for the job.
