    Forsythia is a well-loved choice for adding color in later winter or early spring, but typically fades into the background after a quick blaze of yellow glory. Believe It Or Not® changes all that, with golden foliage splashed with bright green, for color that lasts until frost. Enjoy the fountain of gold created by slender, arching stems as a foundation shrub, mass planting, on a slope, or even in a large flower bed.
