Special Attributes

Love Forsythia but don't have the room for a large shrub? Meet Show Off 'Starlet', a dwarf Forsythia (3 feet by 3 feet) that fits nicely into smaller garden spaces. As with its larger growing cousins, from bottom to top the upright branches are smothered with bright yellow flowers in late winter heralding the arrival of spring. Truly a stunning display of color - a plant that really likes to "show off"!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 3 feet tall and wide, Show Off Starlet Forsythia fits well into smaller garden spaces and containers, where it's larger cousins won't fit. A beautiful accent as a specimen or in groupings in mixed flowering shrub borders or foundation plantings. Also useful as a low natural hedge and grouped or massed on embankments for beauty and erosion control. Also a welcome addition to sunny cut flower and perennial gardens.




Cultural Preferences

Forsythia is exceptionally easy to grow. It is adaptable to most any average soil, preferring a loose, moist but well-drained soil. Full sun is preferred however plants will tolerate some light shade. Does not require pruning, however responds well to it for shaping purposes or low hedges. Prune immediately after flowering.
