Forsythia x 'Minfor6' USPP 24,361


The Show Off® Starlet Forsythia are loved for those that want color early spring. This deciduous dwarf Forsythia brings fourth an abundance of brightly yellow blooms from stem to tip. Being an early spring bloomer, blooms normally appear before its dark green foliage. Starlet is more dwarf than the regular Show Off Forsythia but it's blooms are as abundent. Both are really special!

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

Forsythia blooms with quince and just a couple of weeks after the fragrant paperbush. All prefer a little shade but can handle a good amount of sun. Show Off and Show Off Starlet have brighter and more abandunt blooms than the old types of forsythia. We prefer to trim them each year as their flower structure is more pretty the following year. I put links of everything mentioned here in the 'goes well with' section just below.
