Planted a quart-size plant last fall (zone 5b) along a south-facing wall. Survived the winter (OK, I know it was a mild one!) and come spring it was full of flowers, even though the plant was only 6" - 8" high at the time. Amazing! It is full of leaves now and growing well. Looking forward to next years performance.

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.Resists:Deer

I was impressed with the quality of the plants received. They won't bloom until next spring, but the plants were healthy and began to thrive immediately in their new home.Jo MaumeVirginiaUnited States2 years ago
