Description:

A dense, upright mounded shrub with attractive bronze-tinged new growth in spring, that matures to a soft yellow-green and develops into a brilliant coppery orange in the fall. Panicles of rosy red flowers rise above the foliage in summer, creating a dynamic contrast. Excellent for brightening shrub borders. Good heat tolerance. Deciduous.

Design Ideas: The bright yellow-green of the foliage makes this a stand-out shrub for the mixed border, and outstanding fall color makes it a real eye-catcher. Plant singly or in a group in the sunny border or at the corner of a walkway where it will easily be seen.

Prefers lightly acidic, well-drained soils, but adaptable. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Remove spent blooms to promote continued flowering. Blooms on new wood; prune before new growth begins, as needed to shape.

A Lemon Yellow Pop!
by Georgia Gal, April 20, 2017

The BEST spirea, as the leaves are larger, brighter, and often mistaken for forsythia in the early spring. Bring it back to retail stock, as I've always had to special order it.

I've looked at the gold flame spirea plant for a long time. It is truly a beautiful plant and am looking forward to all the seasonal foliage changes, in addition to it's flowering attributes.
