A relative of the well-known yellow Forsythia, this unusual deciduous shrub produces a stunning winter flower display just as the days start to lengthen to spring.
An easy to grow, compact shrub, the branches are covered with dainty, star-shaped, gorgeously fragrant white flowers - occasionally tinged with pink, each one with a yellow centre - which appear on bare stems before the leaves re-emerge.
The show doesn't end there either as the green leaves turn purple before they fall in the autumn, so you get year-round interest!
Reaching a compact 1.5m height and spread over 10 years, this white forsythia is perfect for smaller gardens, and can be grown in large pots for the patio too - so everyone can grow it, with or without a garden.
Preferring a sunny, sheltered location, the white forsythia is hardy to -6°C or more and needs very little pruning or maintenance. We supply an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting.
Cut stems and add to a vase, where they not only look great, but will also fill the room with their delicate perfume.
