Forsythia plants a versatile shrub.A true sign of spring forsythia is one of the first shrubs to bloom, providing a burst of color when gardeners need it most. The bright yellow flowers often start blooming even when there’s still snow on the ground. This versatile plant can be used in a variety of ways, from a single focal point to hedging or foundation plantings.

Forsythia Blooms in early spring, with a profusion of pale to deep yellow, bell-shaped flowers on the previous year’s growth. Develops graceful branches with an upright or arching habit.

Forsythia prefer a sunny to lightly shaded site with fertile, well-draining soil that will stay evenly moist.

Forsythias are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-draining soil amended with rich organic matter. Ideal pH ranges from 6.8 to 7.7

The forsythia grows to a height of 8–10′ and a spread of 10–12′ at maturity.
