Forsythia 'gold tide' is an outstanding low growing type Forsythia that will spread about 3-4' across and attain a height of about 2 1/2'. The larger, more aggressive upright sprouts should be removed to maintain the ground hugging habit. Some branches will lay right on the ground. Small, fine textured foliage is a shiny light green and very attractive. In fall, when the cold temperatures come on long and slow, the fall color is yellow in the interior of the plant, and purplish to the outside. One of the first plants to bloom in spring with excellent lemon yellow flowers along each stem and lasting sometimes for up to a month. 3 gal
