Forsythia Plants

Forsythia is a most cheerful herald to spring. One of the first bushes to bloom, with their gorgeous yellow blossoms even preceding their leaves, their appearance can’t help but bring a smile to sun-starved faces. The straight, sometimes slightly arching, woody stems are adorned with sunny blossoms that are remarkably long-lasting in cut arrangements and when planted in an evergreen garden is the absolute perfect accent piece.


Forsythia (pronounced for-SITH-ee-a) is a fast-growing shrub, sometimes referred to as Golden Bells, with a mostly upright form that requires remarkably little care once established. Pruning is recommended, right after they flower, so as to encourage more blossoms next year; the blossoms grow on the previous year’s growth. Pruning will also develop a bushier plant. If, on the other hand, pruning is not your thing, they look quite beautiful if left to grow naturally. Forsythia is most often used as a living privacy screen, a flowering hedge or a specimen plant against a fence.

First introduced in 1935, the 'Lynwood Gold' Forsythia Plant has long been a favorite of home and professional landscapers. The official harbinger to spring, they bloom early with masses of buttery yellow blossoms evenly distributed along the woody stems. The dark green foliage follows the fading blooms. Lynwood Gold is a fast grower and widely adaptable, even being able to withstand adverse city conditions and moderately salty environs. Lynwood makes an exceptional property line hedge and can be pruned to maintain its desired height. Each 4-inch pot contains one Lynwood Gold Forsythia plant.

Our coastal gardeners love its moderate tolerance to salty soils and climates. Each 4-inch pot contains one Show Off Forsythia plant.
