Re: 'Gold Tide' Forsythia

I have some kind of small forsythia out front that I've had for at least 
3 yeas.  It is rather annoying, it has grown very little, but looks 
perfectly healthy.  But my real complaint is that it only has about 3-4 
flowers on it each year.  Not too exciting.  As things get more crowded, 
it may have a shortened life-span in my garden...
