Sugar Baby Forsythia

Sugar Baby Forsythia, cultivated by Proven Winners, offers the most vibrant yellow blooms early to start the growing season off right. This compact dwarf cultivar is the perfect plant for around your home’s foundation as it stays 1-3 feet tall and only spreads 2-3 feet at maturity. The smaller growth habit means less pruning for the homeowner and overall, is a fairly low maintenance plant. However, it is important to remember that the forsythia blooms on old wood and sets its buds for the next season during the previous growing season. This means if you do decide to prune your shrub it should only be done immediately after blooming. This plant should also be planted somewhere protected. If the flower buds are over-exposed during the winter, then can die off, and the plant will not flower come spring. The cultivar is hardy in zones 5-8, so unless the winter is extremely harsh, the homeowner should not have many issues. The Sugar Baby is very adaptable to many different soil types, pollution levels, and light levels.
