My Forsythia has bloomed. I guess it doesn't look too bad, considering I have never pruned it. I always forget to prune it when I am supposed to (right after it has bloomed) and then when I do remember I was supposed to prune it, I don't want to prune it at the wrong time. Maybe this is the year I will get it right.
The bush was already here when we bought the place. It was one of the very few things actually, purposefully planted on the property. I guess it is not surprising that a Forsythia was chosen, since the others include Myrtle trees, Lirope, Hosta, and Nandina. I don't think you can get much more Typical-Landscape-Plants for this area!
I am thinking of transplanting the somewhat invasive Vinca to grow underneath it. If the Vinca gets out of bounds, it will just get mowed as it is in a location that I am not currently working on. And I do think the blue Vinca flowers will look so pretty with the yellow of the Forsythia. Maybe I could put some Daffodils and Muscari under there, too.
Have a beautiful day!
