Info

Multi-stemmed shrub with arching branches. Stems are covered with SHOWY, FRAGRANT (almond scented) white flowers before the leaves appear. (Not a true Forsythia -- it just looks like a white Forsythia, hence the common name.) Growth rate depends on how happy it is. Native to a small area of Korea where it's endangered but so popular in cultivation that there's no risk of extinction.

Info

A beautiful shrub known for its small white flower clusters appearing very early in the spring before the leaves. Related to forsythia but having even smaller flowers. Fragrant blossoms cover the plant in profusion, making it a mound of shimmering snowy white in the early spring garden. Exquisite! Give it sun to light shade in fertile, well drained soils.
