Early blooming Forsythia
Early blooming Forsythia

Zones: 4 – 8

Sun or part shade

The very first house I owned in Toronto came with a Forsythia bush in the back yard. I had never really paid much attention to them before I moved into that house.

After a winter of gray skies and cold weather, they always reminded me that sunshine and spring were on the way!

But it’s hard not to fall in love with the yellow flowers that come out on the bush as soon as the snow is melting.
