Spirea Goldmound

Spirea Goldmound


Description: Spirea Goldmound is prized for its eye-catching golden-yellow leaves, which emerge in spring and retain their color throughout the growing season. In early summer, it produces clusters of small, pink flowers that attract butterflies and other pollinators. The flowers contrast beautifully with the bright foliage, creating a stunning display. As the season progresses, the foliage may transition to a more greenish-yellow hue in some climates. In fall, the leaves may turn shades of orange and red before dropping for winter.

Size: This variety typically grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 centimeters) with a similar spread. It has a mounded, compact growth habit, making it ideal for borders, mass plantings, or containers. Its small size and neat form make it suitable for smaller gardens or tight spaces.

Best Growing Zones: Spirea Goldmound thrives in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 8. It is well-suited to temperate regions with cold winters and mild summers, though it can tolerate a range of climates. It performs best in areas with full sun to partial shade, though it may benefit from some afternoon shade in hotter regions.

Soil Requirements: This spirea variety prefers well-drained soil with good fertility. It can adapt to a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it's well-drained. Regular watering is important, especially during the first year after planting, to help establish a strong root system. Once established, Spirea Goldmound is relatively drought-tolerant.

Maintenance: Spirea Goldmound is a low-maintenance shrub that requires minimal care once established. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead, damaged, or overgrown branches and promote new growth. Deadheading spent flowers can help prolong the blooming period and encourage additional flowering. Fertilization may be beneficial in early spring to support healthy growth and foliage color.
