PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Forsythia viridissima koreana 'Kumson'
An absolutely gorgeous forsythia that greets you in the spring with a brilliant display of yellow flowers like most all forsythias, but this variety also gives you beauty long after the flowers of early spring are gone. New foliage is a bright green, maturing to a deeper, more hunter green color with delicate silver veination all throughout the leaves. Looks like they have been painted!! A very vigorous grower - can be trimmed to maintain desired shape & size. Can take anything from full sun to almost full shade, and can withstand a wide range of soil conditions. Looks stunning when planted in groups, both in the spring, as well as all season long.

Evergreen Broadleaf -
good sized leaves are very heavily serrated, and are a nice medium green in base color. Leaves are webbed with very detailed creamy white / silver vein markings

Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts:
Flowers - bright yellow tassel-like flowers appear at the very first sign of spring. Oftentimes Forsythia is the absolute first species in the landscape to "wake up" from winter dormancy. Flowers generally last for at least 2-4 weeks.
Diseases / Insects:
No serious problems, but the following have been noted to occur with Forsythia on rare occasions: Crown gall, leaf spot, Japanese weevil, northern root-knot nematode, and spider mites.
3 ft apart recommended for typical hedge planting
Deer Resistance Rating:
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 -
- 5 - 6 -
- 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance
Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
for use with all of our selections. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
may be used at anytime.
Additional Features & Characteristics:
Needs Occasional Pruning:
This variety will need an occasional pruning to help maintain overall plant shape, and to control some branches that will grow much faster than the rest of the shrub.
