Forsythia

The shrub has an upright habit with arching branches and grows to 3 to 4 meters high. It turns a bright yellow in early Spring. It would make an excellent plant to obscure an unsightly area in the garden. The plant almost doubles in size each year and responds to trimming immediately after flowering and can be shaped to almost any form. I let mine grow wild, since it is in an area not used. There are two large bushes in the garden. Neena is rabbit hunting following the spoor.
