These shrubs do great as a hedge, planted in formal gardens or natural areas in your landscaping. They are also beautiful when grouped with the dogwood tree. Many people will cut the branches from this shrub and bring them into the house when they start flowering for some spring “inside.” As said earlier, these are easy to grow. They love full sunlight or partial shade and will grow in almost any soil.

They are incredibly tolerant of poor growing conditions and have even grown in containers by gardeners that live in an apartment or townhouse without much garden space. Forsythia flowers grow on the previous year’s growth, and pruning is vital as soon as they have stopped blooming.

Some forsythias, especially if they have been neglected or are very old that stop was blooming altogether. Take care of the plant such as this is trim down to the ground. Although it will take some time, probably several years, the plant will come back and produce the blooms that you are seeking. After a gloomy, cold winter, enjoy some lovely spring signs. The forsythia shrub is an excellent choice. Its beautiful flowers, low maintenance, and hardness make it an excellent choice for any gardening project or landscape area.
