Plant of the Week - Forsythia

Plant of the Week - Forsythia

The Forsythia is one of the most brilliantly coloured of early spring flowering shrubs. It is widely planted and popular because of its free flowering nature and ease of culture – it will grow almost anywhere, is completely hardy and grows to 2 to 3m in height and width. 

Forsythia x intermedia ‘Spectabilis is the most popular variety, but there are several other excellent hybrids including ‘Lynwood’ and ‘Weekend’. The latter is more compact and 1/3 smaller than other varieties.
