Design Ideas: Early color from forsythias deserves a well-chosen place in the garden. This smaller variety is particularly well suited for the limited spaces of front yard foundation planting where it may achieve its natural character without shearing. Use at the back of the shrub border for spring brilliance when all else is leafless, then when green it will fade to a rich background for summer bloomers. Create a hedge of bright bold flowers to divide front yards or to line the edge of a driveway. Outstanding against white picket fences where color shows through the slats. Makes a big surprise in wild gardens when the color jumps out of a still dormant landscape. As suited to an informal cottage garden as it is a manicured estate landscape.

Easy to grow in average to poor, well-drained soils. Best flowering in full sun. Water regularly, deeply during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates periodic drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune to shape immediately after flowering.

History

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.
