The Q&A Archives: ordering forsythias

Question: Hi
I'd love to have some forsythia shrubs for my back yard but my landscaper can't seem to get them. Is there any way I can order directly order from you, item #1754, and just double check that it will do ok here in SE Texas, zone 9?
Thank you
Amy Silkebaken

Answer: Amy,

Monrovia is a wholesale nursery. Their plants are available only through local retail garden centers.

I should say however that forsythia is not well adapted to your area. It needs a colder, longer winter period to complete its chill requirements and bloom well. The hot humid long summers in your area are also very stressful for that plant.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
