Starlet is a bright ball of yellow flowers in spring! If your older forsythia takes up too much room and has a weak flower display, try this new, improved variety. It has the same fabulous flower display you get with Show Off forsythia, but in a smaller package. This new dwarf forsythia is a mass of bright yellow spring flowers from base to tip.
