Forsythias are reliable, colorful and easy to grow spring-flowering shrubs. There are many varieties, most of which grow as handsome large shrubs with an open informal habit, but they’re also excellent for growing against walls, and – with careful training – they can make eye-catching standards.
Forsythia x intermedia ‘Spectabilis’ is a vigorous variety, bearing masses of deep yellow blooms on bare stems, from early to mid-spring.
Plant in sun or partial shade, ideally in moist but well drained soil. For the best blooms, cut branches back to a pair of strong buds just after flowering.
