Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On May 26, 2013, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

This cultivar has attractive chartreuse-centered leaves with darker green edges---this gives it season-long interest in combination with other plants in a border. (Try it with purple-leaved cultivars of shrubs like Weigela, Cotinus, or Physocarpus.) Foliage color is most intense in the spring.

It's also usually described as a dwarf, and though I've seen it get to 7 feet tall if left unpruned for many years, it is easier than most forsythias to keep to manageable size with a hard pruning every few years, shortly after it blooms.

The internode length is shorter than with most forsythias. That may be why it's slower growing.

This is the third year for my plant. It has grown rather slowly but it finally seems to be taking off. I noticed here it says mild variegation but my is brightly variegated. Definitely creates a bright spot in the garden.
