Forsythia 'Meadowlark'

Forsythia ‘Meadowlark’

Hybrid forsythia was selected for its superior flower-bud hardiness permitting the highly desired show of bright yellow flowers in early spring despite our harsh climate. Will bloom best in a protected location that is less susceptible to winter dieback or bud damage but still has at least six hours of sunlight. Flower buds are hardy to -35°F.
