Foliage Color & Texture:
Deciduous Broadleaf - foliage is soft, light textured, and fast growing with good overall density. Color is a bright yellow to chartreuse color.....depending mainly on level of sun exposure.
Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts:
Flowers - blooms are formed in clusters usually ranging in size from 1 1/2" - 3" in diameter. Flower heads are not fragrant at all, but are a very nice light pink color, and remain for quite some time before eventually turning brown. Re-blooming can be enticed through removal / pruning off of older expired flower heads.
Diseases / Insects:
From our experiences, it is just about impossible to kill most Spirea varieties. But there are a few pests & problems that have been observed here & there on many Spirea varieties. None are usually life threatening, but should be treated as soon as observed. They include: leaf spot, powdery mildews, root rot, spirea aphid, oblique-banded leaf roller, scales, caterpillars and root-knot nematodes.
4 - 5 ft apart recommended for most typical foreground or accent plantings.
Deer Resistance Rating:
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 -
- 5 -
- 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance
Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
for use with all of Spirea varieties. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
may be used at anytime.
Additional Features & Characteristics:
Container / Patio Gardening :
Goldmound Spirea makes a excellent choice for container or patio gardening due to its ability to be kept trimmed at smaller sizes, and its non aggressive root system.
Goldmound Spirea has a nice orangish red foliage color during the fall.
