Description

The Gold Mound Spirea can be characterized by its lovely golden foliage that is prominent in the spring. This sweet little glowing shrub maintains a small and compact structure reaching a height of 3 feet and width of 4 feet.

Yellow to golden leaves cover this plant in the spring, then becoming more of a green yellow shade during the growing season. Tiny pink flowers are produced in the form of clusters in the late spring, which attract special visitors such as butterflies. Fall brings out beautiful orange foliage.

The Goldmound Spirea is grown for the foliage over the flowers and is actually one of the most common deciduous small mounding shrubs grown in smaller scale landscaping projects.

How To Care

Deadhead the flowers of the Goldmound Spirea after flowers have produced and become spent. This will promote re-blooming as the season progresses. The best way to deadhead this shrub is by shearing. In addition to dead heading, shearing will also help to maintain the shape and compact nature of the plant.

Pruning is optional if suckers start to form on the plant or you wish to maintain a tight and compact structure for spireas planted in small spaces. The Goldmound Spirea responds well to rejuvenation and is recommended to do so in late winter to very early spring.

Landscape Ideas

The Gold Mound Spirea is large enough to be used as a main plant in a border, but small enough so that is does not obscure landscape views. These shrubs look great planted along a walkway border or around a patio.

Plant in clusters of 3 or more!  Larger clusters will bring out a bigger bang of color.  These spirea will also look fantastic planted in a group in front of dark holly trees or in front of privacy trees.

We recommend planting them about a 4.5 to 5.5 feet apart to allow for separation when fully matured. The yellow color of the foliage provides a beautiful contrast against a green lawn. Use them around small ornamental trees and plant red and purple annuals in between or in front of these shrubs for pops of color.

The plants came in very good condition and were much larger than I expected them to be! Great packaging too! So nice to work with an online nursery that really cares about customer support and gives you a great product too. Thank you so much!

Gold Mound Spirea order

Hello, the plants came on time and in good condition. I had a major landscaping job coming up and was worried about the plants reaching me in time. They were a lot fuller than I expected. Water them a couple of times and they came to life. I will keep you posted on the progress. I will definitely order from The Planting Tree again. Extremely satisfied with the plants and the transit time. Thanks! Joe C.
