About the Forsythia -
Lynwood Gold :
The Lynwood Gold Forsythia, Forsythia x
intermedia 'Lynwood Gold', is an old time favorite
with an upright spreading habit and big yellow
flowers up the entire length of stem. It is one of
the best and most reliable of forsythias. The
flowering stems appear as deep golden wands in
April. 'Lynwood Gold' is a dense growing plant with
an upright habit. Forsythia is excellent for
hedging, fast growing and tolerant of moist soils.
'Lynwood Gold' grows 6 to 8 feet tall and wide and
does best in sun to light shade.
Allow plants to develop for the first three years
with minimal pruning. Once plants are established
prune in midspring after flowering by thinning out
crowded stems from the center of the shrub. Also
remove one or two old stems from the base. A little
pruning will go a long way to keep your forsythia
attractive and free flowering!
