Binomial name: Forsythia suspense
Family: Oleaceae
Japanese name: Rengyo
English name: Golden Bell (Tree)
Description: Rengyo is a deciduous shrubbery species of Chinese origin. Rengyo bears yellow flowers in early spring and is suitable for bonsai cultivation as its size and leaves are small. As its roots are voluminous, water tends not to go through the pot. Growers need to spend enough time in mizuyari watering, give a sufficient amount of water, and confirm the water runs out of the pot bottom. They also need to improve sunlight and ventilation conditions while paying attention to protecting against harmful insects.
Viewing season: March-April
