Our plant of the week is one of the easiest to grow as it is relatively low maintenance and hardy of the cold and is one of the most popular shrub for gardeners. It is no wonder as you get both very attractive foliage display as well as nice, full vibrant flower heads that last virtually all growing season long. The flowers come in shades of white, pinks and reds and there are varieties where you get multiple shades on one plant.
Flowering can be enhanced & prolonged through regular trimming / pruning of expired flower heads. Regular light trimmings will also greatly improve plant fullness and overall shape. If only the same could apply to myself
This is just a taster of the varieties we have in stock
Goldmound has extremely bold golden yellow foliage which is accented by nice pink flower heads. It is a real standout spirea for any garden. One of the most striking & popular Spireas especially with its orange / red autumn color.
