ForsForsythia x intermedia "Fiesta"
A bushy shrub with clusters deep yellow flowers are borne before the sharply toothed green variegated leaves.
The spring garden would be a much duller place without the stunning bright yellow flowers of forsyhtia. F. x intermedia 'Spectabilis' " Fiesta varigated " is a vigorous variety that is covered in large deep yellow blooms in early to mid-spring.
Plant in sun or partial shade, ideally in moist but well drained soil, although the plants are not very fussy. For the best blooms and to avoid your plant becoming a monster, cut back the branches that have flowered back to a pair of strong buds just after they have finished blooming.
Height 3m. Spread 2m.
