Noted for its large flowers, award-winning Forsythia x intermedia 'Lynwood Variety' (Border Forsythia) is a vigorous medium-sized deciduous shrub of stiffly upright habit, with a profusion of bright-yellow, four-petaled flowers which appear before the leaves in early to mid spring. The foliage of narrowly ovate, sharply serrated, dark green leaves remains attractive throughout the growing season and turns yellow with purple tinges in the fall.
