Fast Growing Hedge with Spectacular Spring Gold Color

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.

Didn't bloom the way I expected (12 months after planting)
I did some research and I think my soil doesn't have the right pH.
I will need to work on this for the next season. It is growing very fast, though.

My new bush arrived looking great. We planted it as instructed. Unfortunately, we didn't remember to 'cage' it and the deer took a mighty interest. We enclosed it with chicken wire and now it is doing fabulously with lot's of new growth. We also planted a Burning Bush at the same time with similar results. Very hardy plants. I have recommended FGT several times already.

Cautiously optimistic
First spring for this plant. Kentucky had so many ups and downs in temps, did not see blooms, but the plant is healthy and growing, maybe next spring. Lack of blooms this year, 3 stars, ask me again Spring of 2019 (I have faith), that number will probably bump up.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Lynwood Gold Forsythia

Lynwood Gold Forsythia Planting Diretions 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. Planting & Care

Pal T on Jul 21, 2018
Is there a specific time of year to plant these? I live in Eastern PA. Is early September an okay time? Or do I wait for fall?
Kymberlee H on Aug 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter..

How long does it take to grow and have flowers, I planted mine 3 years ago and just have leaves.?
Wanda W on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine had flowers in early spring the first year after planting. They are in full sun.
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 see that the growing zone goes to 8 for this shrub. Do you think there's any chance this could do well in the New Orleans area? My mom had these when I was growing up in Pennsylvania and I always loved them. Wondering if they might do ok here in NO. ?

My farm is located in west KY where I use eight of these forsythias as an asethetic backdrop behind my barn.

Jyosna M on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I lived in southern California near Los Angeles. I had to water weekly due to sunny Cali and the lack rain. So far still growing.
SAYWENN on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have never heard of a forsythia tree-- but anything can be pruned. Forsythias are usually free-form, however, and in my opinion look their best when they are not pruned at all. They tend to look constricted and strange, actually, when they are ill-pruned into rounded or oval shapes-- if anything, deadwood might be removed and branches you'd like to be shorter should be cut back-- one at a time.

A shopper on Aug 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: When I lived in Oregon I had several planted in half barrels and they did great. They are a tough plant.

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
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
Do Forsythia drop flowers or leaves much? I'm considering planting one near an air conditioner and don't want debris to gather near the unit.
Blooming on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In my zone 7 they lose their leaves only in the winter I have never had any leaf loss the rest of the year.
Why don't forsythias grow well in southern Louisiana ? I live in zone 9.
Stephanie C on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Forsythias grow in zones 4-8, which is north of your zone 9 location. They can't take the heat and humidity of southern Louisiana, and don't have enough cold days to meet the needs of their growth cycle.
