Forsythia viridissima var. koreana 'Kumson'

Forsythia viridissima var. koreana 'Kumson'
variegated Korean forsythia
Forsythia viridissima var. koreana 'Kumson'
the flowers look just like those of the common forsythia

Common name variegated Korean forsythia
Family oleaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers yellow (early spring)
Size 6'
Light part-full shade

Silver-veined green leaves, yellow flowers in early spring. It prefers more shade than common forsythia, so we have it growing among other shrubs near our neighbors' arborvitae hedge. That may be a bit much shade, actually, but it still manages to produce some flowers every year.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog
