Botanical Name: Forsythia x intermedia 'Lynwood Gold'
Heralding the arrival of spring, this popular shrub features prolific yellow flowers smothering the branches in early spring ahead of the leaves, the rest of the year rather unassuming; an upright cultivar with showy bright yellow flowers.
Lynwood Gold Forsythia will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 10 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.
This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates.
