Lynwood Gold Forsythia

Attract Attention with this Bold Yellow Beauty!

Bring all eyes to your property with the addition of Lynwood Gold. Just when the landscape is starting to green up after its long winter's nap, this compact, 8-ft. shrub bears its prolific, bright yellow blossoms. It's such a treat when this forsythia blooms, giving the property a much-needed dose of color. Summer brings bright green foliage that changes to a unique purple color in autumn. Outstanding as a specimen planting or shaped into a hedge. The vigorous plant matures to 6-9 ft. tall with an 8-10 ft. spread. Best in full sun to part shade. Zones 5-9.
  • Zone 5 - 9 (-20° F.)
  • Height 6 - 9 feet.
  • Light Required Full sun to partial shade.
