Forsythia is a wonderful spring blooming shrub with many varieties. It grows both as a low lying shrub, as in the dwarf variety, or up to 10 feet in the Lynwood Gold. All specimens seem to be fast growing which is also desirable when you have nothing but bare soil everywhere!
F. x intermedia spectabilis ‘Lynwood Gold’Forsythia's yellow flowers add a burst of color to the late winter or early spring landscapes. Branches can be picked in midwinter and forced into bloom indoors, making it one of the earliest of cut flowers.
The plants when given enough room to grow without pruning, they take on a graceful appearance.
