Forsythia blossom

Forsythia is one of my favorite shrubs, the first woody to flower; when you see these warm golden blooms you know that spring is here, as sure a sign as your first gopher and crocus.

Quite large in maturity, approximately ten by ten feet and a little gangly, they are similar in appearance to an unpruned Villosa lilac. Because of its size, plant it closer to the back of your garden bed.

Northern Gold is our best variety.
