Plant Features

First introduced in 1935, the Lynwood Gold Forsythia Plant has long been a favorite of home and professional landscapers. The official harbinger to spring, they bloom early with masses of buttery yellow blossoms evenly distributed along the woody stems. The dark green foliage follows the fading blooms. Lynwood Gold is a fast grower and widely adaptable, even being able to withstand adverse city conditions and moderately salty environs. Lynwood makes an exceptional property line hedge and can be pruned to maintain its desired height.

Happily surprised

I was thrilled when I received my Lynwood Gold Forsythia. It was perfectly packed and the plant was beautiful. I was impressed having gotten plants in the pots before that were either much smaller than advertised and wilted, dried out and bashed up during shipping. This was my first purchase from GrowJoy and I will be doing the majority of my online shopping with them. I highly recommend that you use them.

Gold Forsythia

I planted this Lynwood Forsythia plant a couple weeks ago in full sun. It's doing very well if I can keep it from the rabbits. Zone 9.

Lynwood Gold Forsythia

I've wanted a Forsythia hedge for a long time and GrowJoy had such a good price. I ordered six plants which came well packaged and in good shape. Unfortunately two plants died but GrowJoy promptly replaced them and all the plants are doing beautifully! I can't wait for all the gold!
