Forsythia


Forsythia is NOT native to Sutton Massachusetts - it's not even native to the North American continent! The Forsythia plant is originally from Asia. Even the seafaring British culture did not know about it until the 1700s. It was then that plants began to be brought back to Europe. With its busy form and its bright yellow color, it soon became popular.

So even though it seems in April that billions of forsythia bushes are in bloom everywhere in Sutton, all of these were originally manually brought in by colonists for decorative purposes. Now they of course may run wild in some locations, but they can trace back to an intrepid colonists wanting to add some yellow to their world.
