About Forsythia
In seeking to know about forsythia, one could start at the origin of the name. Forsythia is named in honor of William Forysth, director of the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1770, maker of the first rock garden in the UK and one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society. The forsythia plant is native to China and was discovered there by Robert Fortune, a great eighteenth century plant-hunter.

But it is better as a song by Veruca Salt off the American Thighs album.

(you remember Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka, don't you)

Yellow baby,
A yellow baby is a bad sign.
But I don’t mind, I don’t mind,
Ohhh, forsythia.
Spider monkey,
A spider monkey is a good lie.
But I don’t know why,
Ohhh, forsythia, oh-ohhh.
I don’t mind sitting in the way way back.
I don’t mind, lying to my friends.
One thing about forsythia,
She comes around and I get lost
Against her yellow, I’m no longer me.
Yellow daisy, a dandelion or a pussy willow,
It’s a different thing.
Oh-oh, forsythia. forsythia. forsythia.
One thing about forsythia,
She comes around and I get lostAgainst her yellow I’m no longer me.
One thing about forsythia
There’s one thing about forsythia
