Forsythia spp.

Well-known shrub from Eurasia is associated with the American garden because it does well here, especially in the cooler climates. In the recent past, selections have been made for hardiness, so the flower buds are not damaged in our cold winters. Now, these northern selections are the standard, with names such as 'Lynwood Gold', 'Northern Gold' and 'Meadowlark'. You know this shrub for its April explosion of pure yellow, but most people forget that Forsythia offers rich red fall color.
