FORSYTHIA x intermedia 'Spring Glory'
Border Forsythia, Spring Glory Border Forsythia
Forsythia x intermedia is an arching deciduous shrub resulting from the cross between weeping forsythia and greenstem forsythia. Its cultivar ‘Spring Glory’ bears an abundance of glowing light-yellow flowers in late winter and early spring. The medium green leaves sometimes turn purplish red in fall.
Position ‘Spring Glory’ in full sun in a fertile, well drained soil, but it does tolerate a wide range of conditions. It is hardy to USDA zone 4, but the flower buds are reliably hardy only to zone 6. Prune judiciously to preserve its arching habit. It works well as a specimen, in mixed borders, or in groupings. Stems may be cut in late winter and brought indoors to force into bloom in a vase of water.
