Forsythia 'Golden Nugget' is a tough, deciduous shrub renowned for their display of yellow flowers on bare stems during spring. 'Golden Nugget' is a more compact form than most Forsythias. It looks especially good grown as a spring flowering hedge.

Forsythias are hardy up to zone 5 and will grow on any well-drained soil in sun or light shade. If required, prune after flowering.
