    Anything but typical!

    It's easy to understand the charm of forsythia: one of the first plants to bloom in spring, cheerful yellow flowers, super easy to grow. If you're looking to add one of these springtime classics to your garden or landscape, consider one out of the ordinary, like Flying Machine. Its golden-orange flowers positively enormous, making for a striking display on the plant. As they age, they spiral to the ground whole, creating a glowing carpet beneath the plant for an extended display you'll look forward to every year. Flying Machine forsythia also shares the outstanding deer resistance and shade tolerance that makes them so versatile and useful.

    Top reasons to grow Flying Machine forsythia:

    - extra large flowers make for an even showier forsythia

    • Fingers crossed that this will thrive as beautifully as the gallon container arrived; however, I ONLY buy (a yard full of purchases) from Proven Winners for a reason: They are PROVEN WINNERS! This arrived full in a perfect little filled in shrub shape and has buds ready to bloom!
