Answer: Sounds like your new forsythia is mildly confused. It should bloom in late winter and then produce leaves. The fact that it's blooming out of season can be chalked up to immaturity. The plant will settle down once it becomes established in its new home and has a chance to experience the changing of the seasons. Nothing needs to be done - just enjoy the blooms. The changing leaf color is normal for this time of year. The leaves will fall soon, and the branches will be bare during the winter months. In very late winter (or very early spring), flowers should appear, followed by new green leaves.
