Forsythia trees are unique because of their bright yellow flowers. The flowers bloom in early spring and are a welcome sign of warmer weather. They are also relatively easy to care for and can thrive in a variety of soil types and climates. Forsythia trees are native to Eastern Asia, specifically China, Korea, and Japan and were introduced to Europe in the early 1800s. It is believed that they were brought over by Scottish plant collector, Robert Fortune. They do not produce nectar, however, the flowers are a popular source of food for bees and other pollinators. There are many different species of forsythia, including Forsythia suspensa, Forsythia viridissima, and Forsythia intermedia.
