Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers a good loose soil, but will do well in any soil. pH adaptable and withstands city conditions and is air pollution tolerant. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering. Old stems can be removed or can be cut back to the ground. Shaping should be done at this time. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.

Interested in seeing a stellar fireworks show before the 4th of July? This little beauty will be a blast of early spring color from the ground up!

Show Off is not your typical Forsythia! It is compact and full of blooms from the ground to the ends of every stem. Older varieties can become out of control and often become victims of pruning. This little beauty will stay small so there is no need to prune. It will just put a smile on your face. This variety is a vast improvement over all. Now you can have your hedge - tight and compact the way you want it without doing any work.
