Forsythia Shrub is a Deciduous Bush
Its golden-yellow flowers bloom before its green foliage and bring a spark of life to early spring landscapes. This deciduous bush grows well in nearly any type of soil or moisture conditions and can tolerate a spectrum of temperatures from high heat to bitter cold. Plant them in any level of light, but an area receiving at least four hours of direct sun daily offers the best results. Forsythia bushes increase, adding up to two feet in height every year for until they reach a mature height as tall as twelve feet in five to six years.

The flowers are arranged all along the entire length of the stem that grows from the base of the plant. The plant is a startlingly beautiful addition to any yard or garden.
Some varieties of this shrub can grow from eight to 10 feet tall and can grow equally broad. However, some types of the bush only grow to seven feet tall and are more suited for a mixed shrub border on a sunny bank. Some varieties are even smaller and grow to just about a foot high with a two to three-foot, compact spread. Some types of shrub have bright green stems that contrast with the yellow flowers.
