Fiesta Forsythia (Forsythia ‘Fiesta’)
Fiesta Forsythia is a deciduous shrub with variegated foliage. These are great border or foundation plants, but would look especially spectacular planted en mass on a slope or in a naturalized area of your landscape.
The unique coloring of the Fiesta is sure to shine in your garden! Its foliage has creamy/gold centers bordered with vibrant green. Each leaf clings to a red stem, which will particularly draw your eye to this Forsythia’s natural beauty.
The highly-variegated foliage is certainly enough to recommend this exceptionally lovely Forsythia for your home, but it has even more remarkable features! The spring brings bright yellow, 4-petaled flowers that arrive so early that even the foliage hasn’t yet appeared.
It’s also a compact plant, requiring little room and hardy enough to necessitate little care. It’s quite simply a tough little plant with a lot to offer!
Fiesta is a vigorous grower that’s tolerant of a variety of conditions, including urban settings. There are no serious insect or disease issues to be concerned with and even deer tend to leave it alone.
There are several Forsythia varieties to choose from, but for a hardy plant that remains small and compact, while still offering superior color, Fiesta Forsythia is certainly a fine choice.
