Forsythia (Forsythia  × intermedia 'Kolgold')
for-SITH-ee-ah ex in-ter-MEE-dee-ah
Synonyms:  'Magical Gold'
Genus:  Forsythia
Striking, extra-large yellow blooms cover each stem from base to tip in early spring.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Forsythia are widely recognized for their utility in a shrub border, bank, or for hedging, and for their light to deep yellow, four-petaled flowers. Choice cultivars are suitable for specimen planting or rock garden placement. The branches are great for arrangements and are easy to force in late winter. 
Care:  Grow in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. Prune after flowering (one option is to remove the oldest stems and selectively shape).
Propagation:  Take greenwood cuttings in late spring or early summer, take semi-ripe cuttings in late summer.
Problems:  Arabis mosaic virus, stem gall, dieback, root knot nematode, leaf spot.
