Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
Deep golden yellow blooms will always come on this new forsythia because it blooms on both old and new wood. It’s a gardener’s dream. The perfect, carefree, super-hardy landscape plant just got a whole lot better because you’ll never have to worry about cutting it back too late in the season. If you cut it back too late, it’ll bloom on the next year’s wood and be a little later, but no worries about not having blooms.
How many times have you driven past a carefully pruned plant in spring – only to see no flowers? That will never happen again with Magical Gold. It doesn’t mater when you prune it – you will always have flowers – where ever you live. You can’t go wrong. Long, sturdy, architectural stems with golden blooms are harbingers of spring! The stems are sturdy and compact, yet covered with blooms from top to bottom. Spring bouquets can last even longer with this new, improved selection.
