Fast Growing Hedge with Spectacular Spring Gold Color


Height

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

Forsythia shrubs give you great color not only in the spring, but in the fall months as well. In early spring, your Lynwood Gold Forsythias will produce an abundance of bright yellow flowers… signaling to everyone that spring has arrived. 

This floral display against its deep green foliage is nothing short of amazing. You get another showing of fabulous color in the fall, when its leaves turn bright yellow with a hint of orange and red. 

• Plant these trees in rows for a vibrant display of color and unbeatable coverage. 
• Plant them alone as colorful ornamental plants. 
• Plant for coverage as a privacy screen or hedge. 

With a growth rate of 2 to 4 feet per year, your forsythia will quickly fill any space, anywhere. These Lynwood Gold Forsythias are virtually carefree – you don't have to be an expert to get outstanding results! 

Just plant these shrubs wherever you want tons of color... sit back... and enjoy the show! We do recommend a light pruning after the leaves have dropped to give it good shape and consistent growth. 
Nothing can lift winter gloom faster than a glimpse of the cheery sunshine yellow bloom of forsythia. Its abundance of sunny yellow color will become an integral part of your lawn and garden.

It's Easy to Plant your Lynwood Gold Forsythia

Specific Directions for Lynwood Gold Forsythia
Your Lynwood Gold Forsythia will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Lynwoodgold Forsythias prefer full sun they can tolerate shade. Plant your Lynwood Gold Forsythias about four feet apart for a hedge.

Lynwood Gold Forsythias will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Once established Lynwood Gold Forsythias will only need to be watered during times of prolonged drought. Usually rain fall provides enough moisture.

In the Early Spring fertilize your Lynwood Gold Forsythia with a fertilizer that's high in phosphorous and prepare for the show. Vibrant yellow blooms will emerge every Spring. There's also an encore performance in the Fall when your Lynwood Gold Forsythia leaves will turn from green to bright yellow.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lynwood Gold Forsythia.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Lynwood Gold Forsythia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Lynwood Gold Forsythia again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

A Nice Addition to My Garden
I did not receive the forsythia until after the flowering season so I cannot comment on what I am sure will be its beauty next spring.
I have a container - rooftop garden in Manhattan and for years there has been an empty space next to a forsythia I have had for 30 years. I always wanted to put in another to fill out the container and now I have.
It started growing right away and has established itself nicely. I am confident it will be as beautiful an addition next spring as I had always hoped.
Thank you.

Why don't forsythias grow well in southern Louisiana ? I live in zone 9.
Stephanie C on Jun 9, 2015
Best Answer: It may depend on your soil. I live in Texas & I assume your soil is clay-ish. Or, you didn't water enough in summer when they were young. Plant them in October/November to let the roots get used to your soil. They won't have nearly the transplant shock & they should take off in spring if you water it often (a couple times a week) and feed them with all purpose fertilizer with a 10-10-10 rating. If you find some that allows you to add it to top of soil every 2-3 months, you can try that too. I'm considering getting one & prune it into a small tree. The steps I've explained here work great for me. I have 5 Black Diamond(Ebony)Crape Myrtles, Shamard Oak & a Wax Myrtle. When I began the steps I mentioned they all took off & look good & healthy.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Can these be planted in planters on a balcony? What size planter do you recommend? Do you have sizes larger than 2 gallons? If I wait til March or April will that be better than planting now?
Roberta S on Aug 11, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Roberta
Yes Forsythia can be container grown. You will need a container 2 times as wide as the plant and 1 1/2 times as deep. We do not currently offer anything other than 2 gallon. You can plant it now, but will need to be watchful of it during winter. Not knowing where you live I do not know how severe your winters tend to be, you may need to winterize it. Spring would give it plenty of time to establish before the following winter. If you need further assistance please call our sales department at 1 888 504-2001. Happy Gardening

I have a shaded area under some mature trees. Will this species of Forsythia thrive and survive in this environment?
John S on Apr 26, 2015
Best Answer: I have this shrub and it is huge now - I bought it from Fast Growing trees 2 years ago and mine is in partial shade. I think if they are in full sun, they get more blooms, however, my neighbors have about 30 plants around their yard and they are in full sun and they don't bloom like this picture. Mine don't either.

I have forsythia that is supposed to be a shade variety. It doesn't bloom or if it does only a few blooms. It doesn't get much sun. how much sun does it need?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer: My Lynwood Gold Forsythia is in partial sun. It receives at least 6 hours of sunlight a day and afternoon shade. These plants do well in full to partial sunlight, but prefer full sunlight. Give it some all purpose fertilizer in the early Spring to help boost the blooms.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
