"Gold Vein Forsythia" Upright deeply arching stems (typically topping out at five feet) not only present a great pastel golden flowered display early spring but continue to impress with each dark green leaf richly patterned with a bright pewter gold vein network. Fabulous. This one lives up to its photos: to see its mosaic designed foliage up close is to need it in your garden. Near first frost the entire foliar display turns orangy copper and dusky burgundy.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
