Forsythia is a fast growing, upright deciduous shrub with arching branches that are pest and deer resistant. Bright yellow flowers cover the branches in early spring before the green foliage appears. Although it will tolerate some shade, the best flowering occurs in full sun. Forsythia grows to 10 ft. tall and 12 ft. wide and grows in almost any soil type, except very dry.

It makes an almost impenetrable hedge/screen due to its dense branch habit when planted 4-5 ft. apart.
