It is impossible to live in a northern climate and be unfamiliar with Forsythia. The durability, vigor, and abundant yellow flowers of this early bloomer make it one of the most popular and important ornamental plants known. Forsythia is a vigorous grower in all but damp soils (which it doesn't like), and it can get out of control if left to its own devices. But a touch of pruning, best done right after flowering to preserve the next year's buds, produces a satisfactory form for practically any location. Snip a few arching sprays for winter forcing, and you'll never notice the difference. Underplanted with spring-flowering bulbs, Forsythia can and should be a highlight in the spring garden. It harbors no pests. Deer resistant. For more information, click on Growing Guide.
