Forsythia grows in USDA hardiness zones 3-9 but is most prolific in the southern United States.
Bloom Season and Color
Lynwood Gold Forsythia produces bright yellow flowers in the early spring. The deep four-lobed blooms appear before the leaves and will turn themselves down during rain.
The bark of the stems and branches is a grayish-brown in color.
Height at Maturity
Lynwood Gold is a tall bush that routinely grows 1-3 meters (approximately 3-9 feet) high with occasional outliers reaching heights of 6 meters (about 18 feet).
Preferred Soil Type
Forsythia prefers fertile soil that is well-drained and not prone to compaction but is known to thrive in many soil compositions and conditions.
Preferred Lighting Conditions
This hardy shrub needs full sun to flower at its best but will still thrive with partial sun, although the bloom will be less dense.
Lynwood Gold Forsythia is an eye-catching addition to any garden, most especially through the early spring.
After a warm winter, Forsythia will occasionally bloom as early as late January, but it begins its typical display in late March.
The long slender stems produce clusters of deep, 4, or 5 lobed flowers that are a bright and cheerful yellow along their length. Flowers typically grow only along old growth stems.
The leaves of this bush emerge well after the flowers and are typically 3-10 centimeters (approximately 1-4 inches) in length with either serrated or smooth edges.
While height and width of Forsythia are mostly determined by pruning technique and timing, this versatile and hardy shrub can reach heights and widths of 6-9 meters (approximately 9-12 feet).
Branches tend to grow upright, with some varieties showing more flexibility and tending to droop, especially when it reaches maximum height and experiences a thick bloom.
This plant looks exceptional when used as garden borders, natural privacy fencing, and to accent empty landscaping space.
Plant this bush in any wildlife or pollinator garden to provide a welcome food and shelter source for local birds, butterflies, bees, and small mammals.
