Forsythia are deciduous shrubs growing to 13 m (rarely 6 m) tall, that are planted for there spectacular floral display of yellow blossoms in early May. The copious yellow yellow flowers open in early May before the leaves emerge. The bloom period lasts approximately two weeks followed by the emergence of uniform green leaves. The prosaic grey-brown bark neither adds nor detracts from the spring show.

The leaves are opposite, usually simple but sometimes tri-foliate with a basal pair of small leaflets, and range from 210 cm (rarely to 15 cm) long; the margin is serrated or entire. The flowers are produced in the early spring before the leaves, bright yellow with a deeply four-lobed corolla, the petals joined only at the base. The fruit is a dry capsule, containing several winged seeds.

Fascinating Floral Facts:

Forsythia was named after William Forsyth (1737-1804) He was the chief superintendent of the Royal Gardens at Kensington and St.James and a founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society in London, England
