Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Gold Tide® Forsythia is a low-growing shrub that stays less than 2 feet tall, but covers an area 4 feet wide. It is perfect for ground cover, planting on banks or slopes, or for spilling over walls. In very early spring it blooms profusely on the bare stems, with bright yellow flowers that tell us spring is finally here. The dense foliage with its bright green leaves makes an excellent companion to shrubs that bloom later in the growing season. Very easy to grow and tolerates poor soil and urban conditions.

  • Unique forsythia with an arching, low growth form
  • Flowers profusely in very early spring, on bare branches
  • A few plants cover a large area
  • Also ideal for covering banks, slopes and the top of walls
  • Grows well even in difficult soil and urban conditions

Full sun will give the most blooms on the Gold Tide® Forsythia, but it will grow well in partial shade too. It is hardy almost everywhere, hot or cold, but bloom damage is possible in zone 5 and colder zones. It grows in all soils but constantly wet ones, including heavy clays and urban soil. It has no important pests or diseases and deer leave it alone. Prune immediately after flowers to keep it open, neat and vigorous.
