I love forsythia. It is usually blooming along with the crocuses before snow has actually melted. And some genus are hardy from Zone 2 (that would be Northern CANADA) to Zone 8 (Georgia)

So it surprises me how few bushes I have seen here in the tundra of Minnesota.

This bunch, forced into blooming on my dining room table, is from Costco. But it is feeding my spring obsession admirably.

(BTW - the fence outside the window is 8' - I don't expect to see my crocuses for a while, June maybe)

Also, yellow flowers are a much more pleasant harbinger of spring than say . . .
(that would be last year's pumpkin plant container)
