Spring Glory Forsythia

Forsythia x intermedia 'Spring Glory'

SKU
03710
A showy, deciduous shrub with a broad, rounded outline on an upright form that absolutely explodes with masses of soft yellow flowers to herald the arrival of spring. Use as a background shrub in borders or as a spring accent in the garden, that will blend in with mixed perennials as the green toothy foliage replaces the spring blooms.

Bloom TimeEarly Spring
Design IdeasForsythia is the first of the old-fashioned deciduous flowering shrubs to bloom in spring. Plant as a single specimen in an out-of-the-way place where it can spread and bloom into a golden mass then blend into the background for the rest of the season. Although Forsythia may be sheared or heavily pruned, doing so decreases its drama. Can be used as espalier, bank cover, hedge or screen. So rugged it may naturalize in woodland or wild gardens.

Very adaptable to most soils; thrives in moist, well-drained, humus-rich loams. Best flowering in full sun. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring. Prune to shape, immediately after flowering.
