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 soil or moisture conditions and can tolerate a spectrum of temperatures from high heat to bitter cold. Plant them in any light level, 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 until they reach a mature height as tall as twelve feet in five to six years. Forsythia shrub Expect mature bushes to be nearly as complete as they are tall with lush summer foliage that makes them a natural, colorful substitute for plastic fencing.

The flowers are arranged 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.

However, some bush types only grow to seven feet tall and are more suited for a mixed shrub border on a sunny bank.

    Forsythia shrubs

    The plants arrived promptly and in good condition, I planted the next day. My minor complaint would be that I didn’t see the 2 hr soaking instructions on the root ball bag, until after planting. Maybe some better instructions for us newbies on bare root planting.Spring will tell the story.
