Your yellow trilliums can live around 25 years and will spread naturally if left unattended. If you start from a seed, the three large leaves will take a few years to grow in properly. Trilliums bloom in mid to late spring and become dormant in late summer to early fall.
Forsythia shrubs are an eye-popping way to add yellow to your garden or lawn. These bushes bloom in late winter, transforming a grey and snowy yard with flashes of brilliant gold. Each branch is covered in tiny yellow flowers that bloom in the presence of warmth and light; you can bring a few cut branches inside during the winter and "force" them to bloom as a great cure for cabin fever.
Forsythia maintenance is all about proper pruning. The plants have a relaxed, natural growth pattern that needs to be respected while maintaining the plant's appearance. Flowers appear on the previous year's growth, so pruning should be done relatively early in the season.
