Description

Golden Bell Forsythia - Forsythia intermedia. is a Flowering Bush

Golden Bell Forsythia is a bush that flowers in the late winter to early spring with small, bright yellow flowers. In summer the green leaves appear, which turn to a golden yellow in the fall. These fast-growing bushes reach a height of 9-11 feet. Used as a border or a living fence, they grow in zones 5-9 in well-drained clay soil with full to partial sun.

Golden Bell Forsythia is Fast Growing and Perfect for Landscaping Applications 

Forsythia is an excellent choice for those in more southern areas. Forsythia features many long, woody branches, which make for a more artistic and rambling bush than more staid examples such as boxwood or privet. However, forsythia bushes are just as useful as a green privacy shrub. The golden bell forsythia has the botanical name Forsythia intermedia and is a medium sized that is low maintenance that does not need trimming and is fast growing, which is perfect for landscaping applications. This shrub has small to medium yellow flowers that bloom before the leaves form. These blooms last for between two to four weeks. After the flowers die off, then the shrub is filled with green foliage that can make a beautiful border shrub in yards and outer edges of gardens. The shrub will produce more blooms when it is located in a sunny area. The bush features long thin shiny brown branches.

 The flowers can be cut and put in a vase with warm water, and they will last for an extended amount of time. The golden bell forsythia was named after William Forsythia a Scottish botanist. This shrub is in the Victorian language of flowers as symbolizing anticipation. The flowers can be found in floral shops to add to bouquets. The forsythia flowers are edible and can be used to make teas or syrups and decorate cakes. This is also a common herb in Chinese medicine used for colds, bronchitis, and allergies.

  The Golden Bell Forsythia Plant (Forsythia x intermedia) originated as a hybrid. Botanists crossed F. suspensa with F. viridissima to produce this lovely garden shrub. The plant contains both male and female components. It erupts into colorful displays of golden blossoms during Springtime.

 An Appealing Ornamental Plant

 The Golden Bell Forsythia Plant works well in either garden or as a landscaping bush. Planted in a series, it also provides an excellent hedge. It tolerates a range of soil conditions and thrives from Zone 5 through Zone 8.

 A Hardy Bush

  The Golden Bell Forsythia Plant attains heights between 8 and 10 feet. It features oval to oblong dark green leaves measuring between 3 and 5 inches in length. When raised as a standalone bush and not trimmed, it reaches diameters of up to 12 feet across. It usually flowers between March and April, early enough that the blooms emerge before the plant develops prominent new leaves. 

 Brilliant Colors

  This bush creates spectacular clusters of bell-shaped pale yellow to golden blooms along its woody stems. Its bright floral displays enhance its decorative value; branches tend to arch upwards. They sometimes contribute to flower arrangements. This perennial grows rapidly (increasing in height by up to two feet annually). It prefers well-drained locations with at least four hours of daily sunlight.
