I live on Long Island, NY zone 7 and purchased this forsythia a couple of yrs. ago. Much to my surprise, this shrub rebloomed last Fall, as well as, this Fall. As noted in the photos, the green leaves turned a burgundy like color. Is anyone familiar with this variety and do you know it's name? Thanks in advance.

Mine do the same thing.....the leaves turn burgundy and it blooms sporadically throughout the winter and early spring....It's normal for them...

The flowers on yours seem a bit bigger than most, so if I were to guess, I'd say the variety is 'Lynwood'.

Hope that helps
