Golden Bell ~ Forsythia suspensa
This forsythia could be planted just like any other hedge and would be located to the right of the stairs, next to the other part of the building on the right in a mulched bed. Golden bell is native to China and can be found along roadsides, forest borders, fields, and manmade/disturbed habitats. It's popularly planted in North America for its arching branches that bear numerous yellow flowers. One thing I love about this species is that it's a very early blooming species and if the branches droop down enough to touch the ground, it has the ability to form roots that can spread the plant if desired.
