One of these Forsythia shrubs is not like the other.
Both of these shrubs are supposed to be Forsythia Lynwood's, but they don't look like each other at all.
The "blond" on top is what I just received from Forest Farm; the "brunette" at the bottom is one I bought at a local nursery in my area late last summer.
It's not just the color either. The shrub from Forest Farm's limbs are spindly and weaker, plus I don't know what they did, but it looks like they cut off one of the trunks midway, and just left it there. I don't like how it looks at all. It also doesn't have half the buds of my other shrub.
Look, I know Forest Farm is a reputable nursery, and they know what they're doing.. I have bought all of my trees and shrubs there and I've been extremely happy with everything. I just don't know what is going on with these shrubs.
Why do they look so different from each other?
