Profuse Blooms on Dwarf Forsythia
Arnold Dwarf Forsythia, Forsythia 'Arnold Dwarf', is an excellent dwarf groundcover type shrub. It flowers profusely in early spring before the leaves appear.
The dark green summer foliage develops a bronze-green fall color. Arnold is a smaller size forsythia that provides both late winter color in the landscape and cut branches for indoor bloom when flowers are scarce.
It tolerates most soils and prefers full sun for best bloom, but will tolerate partial shade. If allowed to arch to the ground, the branches will root and spread.
Forsythia makes excellent erosion control, especially on slopes. To keep in its smallest form, trim to ground after bloom to encourage new growth and more flowers the next year.
A moderately fast grower, this makes a desirable border shrub in the landscape. This excellent groundcover, rerooting as it spreads.
Plant in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. This plant can even be grown in a container!
