CARE
Care Prefers rich, loose, well-drained soils, but very adaptable. Best flowering in full sun. Water regularly, deeply during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed before new growth begins in early spring. Blooms on previous year's growth; prune to shape immediately after flowering.
HISTORY
Lore Forsythia has been used in Chinese medicine for aeons where it is listed among the 50 essential herbs. It is valued chiefly for its antiseptic effect used to treat wounds and boils. Like calendula of the west, forsythia flower petals also contain powerful bacteria fighting properties which make it an important dressing.
