Spirea japonica 'Goldmound'

Spirea

Spirea japonica 'Goldmound' is a dense, upright, mounded, deciduous shrub that typically grows 3-4’ tall with a slightly larger spread. Small pink flowers in flat-topped clusters cover the foliage in late spring to mid-summer with sparse and intermittent repeat bloom often occurring throughout the remainder of the growing season. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. ‘Goldmound’ is noted for its attractive golden foliage. Leaves emerge golden in spring, but gradually fade to a gold-green as the summer progresses. 

Spirea Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Tolerates a wide range of soils. Remove faded flower clusters as practicable (light shearing is an option) to encourage additional bloom. Flowers on new wood, so prune in late winter to early spring if needed.
