We know spring has arrived in northern climes when we see the cheery yellow blooms of the ubiquitous forsythias in April. Named after William Forsyth, one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society in the eighteenth century, forsythias produce four- petaled clusters of bell-shaped flowers in the axils of the stiff, rough branches. Forsythia × intermedia ‘Courdijau’, marketed as Golden Peep Forsythia, is a newer cultivar from France that is very low-growing, at about 2 feet tall and spreading to 3 feet or more. It has better flowering than ‘Arnold Dwarf’. In France, it is marketed as Casque D’or.
Forsythias are very adaptable to poor soil and varying moisture, but the flower buds may be tender on older cultivars. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering, giving new growth time to form flower buds. Never shear forsythias into “green meatballs,” as their natural shapes are graceful enough.
포사이시아의 한 종류입니다. 18세기의 왕립원예학회의 설립자 중의 한 명인 윌리암 포사이스의 이름을 따라 지어졌는데, 보통 북반구에서 4월에 화사한 꽃을 피워 봄이 온것을 알려 줍니다. 한국의 개나리처럼 꽃잎은 4장이고, 꽃은 종모양입니다. 이 품종은 프랑스에서 새로 개량된 것으로, 2피트 정도로 낮게 자라고, 3피트 정도로 퍼집니다. ‘아노드
