Yellow Bells Forsythia
Forsythia intermedia 'Lynnwood Gold'

Originally discovered in 1935 growing in a garden called Lynwood located in Cookstown, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, Lynnwood Gold is a vigorous, heavy-blooming forsythia noted for its spectacular late winter to early spring bloom of  larger-than-usual bright yellow flowers. Thes flowers literally cover the branches with bloom before the new spring foliage emerges. The willowy green foliage emerges after the bloom cycle and is attractive throughout the season, turning purple in fall. Give this forsythia plenty of room to grow as it can spread to 9 feet in width.

Forsythia is an exceptionally easy to grow. It is not picky about soil as long as the soil is well-drained. Full sun is preferred however plants will tolerate some light shade. Does not require pruning, however, Forsythia can be pruned or sheared for shaping or hedges after flowering in late winter or early spring. USDA Zones: 4b-8b  Find Your Zone >
