The packaging was great, fast shipping, reasonable price. Upon arrival it had maybe 5 or 6 leaves....with water and good sunlight after 2 weeks it looks like this picture. I have no doubt it will bounce right back and be lovely. Giving four stars just in case.

I bought 2 of these lovely shrubs and planted them at opposite ends of my flower bed. I closely followed the planting instructions but unfortunately only one of the shrubs survived. I have tried everything but to no avail; looks like one is dead but the remaining bush is beautiful and flourishing. I cannot understand what went wrong.

    Plants came in an easy to access box, and the plants were robust, healthy, and in full flower. Soil was moist in the pot, and the forsythia is thriving where planted.
