Goldmound spirea

Zone 84117 | evellusion added on August 3, 2017 | Answered

I planted two nice bright yellowy Goldmound Spireas among other varieties of Spirea to give a shot of the cheery color. Within a few weeks, they both were darker green than all the other varieties. They get 8-10 hours of sunshine. They are otherwise nice and healthy. I'm an artist and have designed my flower garden as carefully as I would a painting so I'm a little disappointed. No smart phone, so no pictures to send. Evelyn Miller

Color change is normal in this variety.

Vibrant golden spring foliage, accented by clusters of pink flowers, cools to a yellowish green in summer then a rich, yellowish orange in fall.
