Hello! My name is Northern Gold Forsythia, and I am best known for my flowers being the welcoming committee for your spring garden. I am best known for my striking golden bell shaped flowers, which bloom in abundance along my branches in early spring before the leaves begin to sprout. I am a low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after I am done flowering to make sure none of the current season's flowers are removed. I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when mass planted in full sunlight to enhance my colorful springtime effect!

  • Early Spring Bloom: The Northern Gold Forsythia is known for its stunning yellow flowers that bloom in early spring, making it one of the first shrubs to bloom each year. This makes it a great choice for adding a burst of colour to your garden after a long, dreary winter.
  • Easy to Grow: This shrub is easy to grow and requires minimal maintenance. It is adaptable to a wide range of soil types and growing conditions and is generally pest and disease resistant. This makes it an excellent choice for novice gardeners or anyone looking for a low-maintenance plant.
  • Bright Foliage: The Northern Gold Forsythia also features bright green foliage that turns a brilliant shade of yellow in the fall, making it a beautiful addition to any landscape throughout the growing season.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, this plant is moderately drought tolerant, but regular watering is still recommended during prolonged dry periods.
  • Maintenance: This plant is generally low maintenance, requiring little attention once established. In early spring, before new growth emerges, remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches.
  • Pruning: If necessary, lightly prune after flowering to maintain a neat, compact shape. Avoid heavy pruning during the growing season, as this can reduce the following year's flowering. In late winter, before new growth emerges, remove any remaining dead or damaged wood, and thin out any weak or crossing branches.
  • (Optional): Northern Gold generally does not require fertilizer, as it can thrive in a variety of soil types. If desired, a light application of balanced fertilizer in early spring can help promote healthy growth and flowering.

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
