Forsythia x ovata 6-8' x 5-7' Bred by Felicitas Svejda, Ottawa, Canada, 1979.
One of the earliest forsythia cultivars to flower in spring. Upright form with yellow-grey branches clad in healthy rich green foliage.
If your forsythia blooms only from the snow line down, you’ve been duped: don’t buy cheap big-box forsythia. Northern Gold has not only the bud hardiness necessary for flower production above the snow line, but also outstanding golden-yellow flowers. You can have a full bloom every year!
Prefers moderately fertile, slightly acid to neutral soils with good drainage. Makes an outstanding hedge. Bred from F. ovata, a hardy dependably blooming Korean species native to Asia and Europe. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)
