Golden Bell Forsythia Golden Bell Forsythia is Hardy in Zones 3-9
Bloom Season - Late winter to early spring
Bloom Color - Bright yellow
Height at Maturity - 9 to 11 feet
Soil Type Preferred - Well-drained clay soil

Plant Description - In late winter to early spring, our fast-growing Golden Bell Forsythia bush featuring long, shiny brown branches that tend to arch upwards will bloom with clusters of small to medium bright yellow flowers that will appear before the leaves form. These blooms will last about two to four weeks and produce more flowers when you plant it in a sunny area. In the summer, the bush will feature green leaves that will turn to a vibrant golden-yellow in the fall.
It's a low-maintenance, fast-growing, and hardy plant that requires a little trimming and will add a striking splash of gold to your garden or landscape. When planted in a series, it also provides an eye-catching hedge or living fence. It'll thrive from Zone 5 through Zone 8 and can tolerate a variety of soil conditions.
The perfect time to prune the Golden Bell Forsythia is in the spring after it flowers
Pruning should consist of a thinning out of the older branches at the base of the bush, which will allow the most vigorous branches to thrive and take over. Cutting back the bush to the ground will also give it the chance to produce all new growth.
This grand bush can grow up to 11 feet tall. When not trimmed and raised as a standalone bush, it can also reach diameters of up to 12 feet across. This perennial grows quickly and can increase in height by up to two feet yearly.
