Common names are very nice when expressive, and Golden Bell, first suggested by A. J. Downing for the Forsythia, is a very good name. Botanically, there is but one species, Forsythia viridissima; F. suspensa and F. Fortunei being all forms of one thing. The two former are, however, so distinct as to be well worth preserving under separate names. The two last have no material difference. The leaves of one are trifoliate, and entire on the other, but the two kinds are often seen on one plant.
