Golden bell is one of the earliest blooming shrubs in Central European spring. Though considered one of the most usual, perhaps boring and omnipresent shrubs, once it puts up its millions of vivid yellow flowers it cheers up many tired faces. Forsythia x intermedia is a hybrid between F. suspensa x F. viridissima.

Goldraush is a novelty from Germany bearing extra large flowers of golden yellow colour. They come out a little later than on usual forsythia and last a bit longer. Another advantage is its ability to bloom profusely on one-year old wood. It flowers as a very young plant.

Deciduous leaves are lanceolate, mid-green, serrated. The bark is yellow-green to yellow-brown. It can be pruned almost any time from spring until early autumn. However, the best time is after flowering. This forsythia can be cut even into old wood and readily regenerates but needs no pruning at all as its shape is quite regular, forming an open V shape.

It is widely soil adaptable. It will tolerate poor soil, and both temporary drought or flooding. Fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5), but withstands short spells of deeper frost.
