Forsythia ‘Flying Machine®‘ is one of the earliest shrubs to bloom in the spring. It’s a large shrub that will be covered in yellow flowers.
And who wouldn’t want to look out their window to see these extra large golden-orange flowers brightening their garden?
Even when the flowers are done, they stay in tact when they fall to the ground forming a gold carpet under the plant.
It blooms on old wood, so prune immediately after flowering to prevent cutting off next year’s flowers.
This variety of Forsythia is easy to grow, shade tolerant (although it will bloom more heavily in the sun) and deer resistant
