Just wondering if anyone has had anyluck planting Forsythia down south or in a 9/10 zone? I have been doing some reading and it appears you can shape these and have them as hedges. My only fear is that when it gets cold here in the winter months will it just turn to sticks? I know the yellow flowers dont last long but I dont want to have a border of sticks in the cold. I dont mind just leaves. Is this worth planting?
