    Forsythia, there are several species and some named cultivars. Probably the most commonly encountered form is Forsythia × intermedia.
    It is often described as growing to about 6’ x6’, but it can grow much larger – twice that size or more. It is perhaps best cut back immediately after flowering, the subsequent growth can be quite considerable and will produce flowers along the entire length the following spring.
