Abeliophyllum Distichum, more commonly known as White Forsythia, is a deciduous shrub treasured for its masses of white, scented flowers. With an early, profuse bloom, this bushy shrub works best in mixed shrub borders, where it serves as an early herald of spring. In the late winter, the bare, grey branches are enveloped by delicate pink buds, which promptly unfold to small, four-petaled flowers. Unlike the standard yellow flowering forsythia, Abeliophyllum Distichum boasts white or blush-tinged, fragranced flowers. The flowering season ends with the spring, leaving an ornamental shrub with a multi-stemmed habit and glossy, green foliage.

White Forsythia thrive in full sun and moist, but well-drained soil. This cultivar is not particularly fussy when it comes to growing conditions, but it will appreciate a sheltered position, away from cold, drying winds.  Considered pest and disease free, this deciduous shrub is easy to grow and to care for. Native to Korea, Abeliophyllum Distichum is fully hardy in the United Kingdom. This tough cultivar can survive even if the temperatures drop to 20 degrees below zero. However, even though this shrub won’t mind the cold weather, new growth and the flower buds might suffer damage from late frosts.

Vigorous but not intrusive, White Forsythia grows to be around 1 to 1.5 meters high, with a spread up to 2.5 metres. When it comes to pruning, this flowering shrub is easy to keep in great shape. An annual clip just after the flowering season ends will encourage new growth and ensure any damaged or dead stems are removed from the plant. In case you plan to wall train this cultivar, shorten and remove any unwanted side shoots over the summer.

The elegant form of White Forsythia, as well as its profusion of blossoms, make this cultivar a great addition to mixed shrub borders. Pair it with evergreen shrubs that will provide necessary winter shelter and offer a lush backdrop for the stunning spring bloom.

More shrubs with spring interest include Tamarix Tetrandra, Ceanothus Concha or Azalea Japonica Hot Shot. Other Forsythia varieties we offer include Forsythia x Intermedia Weekend and Forsythia Intermedia Gold Rausch.
