One of the first plants to bloom in the spring, the Northern Gold Forsythia is grown for its stunning yellow floral display. A large shrub, this forsythia can get up to 8 feet tall and 5 to 7 feet wide.
It has an upright habit and can be pruned lightly after it blooms in the spring. It prefers full sun to bloom and grow its best but can tolerate various soils and moisture levels. It is disease and pest-resistant. It works well as an accent, hedge, or large foundation planting.
