The Goldmound Spirea is a wonderful, colorful addition to any landscape as a shrub or perennial border, or for brightening your container garden with its mounds of bright, golden foliage!
This decadent deciduous shrub features vibrant yellow spring foliage with clusters of pink flowers. As the early summer progresses, the colors turn to a vibrant golden green that eventually turns to a rich, yellowish orange in fall before it loses its leaves.
This plant grows best in medium moisture, well-drained soils and in full sun. The Goldmound Spirea shrub will tolerate a wide range of soils and light shade. Remove faded flower clusters to encourage additional blooms.
This mounded shrub can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It can be grown across most of the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-9. If you are looking for a compact shrub for mass planting this is a great choice!
Fairly easily grown, the Japanese spirea should be pruned in late winter to early spring to encourage new growth in the spring growing season. The gold mound spirea bush will establish a strong root system after 1 year of planting.
Our top choice for foundation plantings!
