Spirea Goldflame 2

Goldflame Spirea’s foliage provides a three-season, color-changing display. New leaves start bronze in spring, and turn yellow with a light pink edging in summer. In the fall, they turn an attractive, coppery orange. Give this remarkable coloration the spotlight in borders and garden beds that receive sun to part shade. In early to midsummer, and again in early fall, bunches of bright pink blooms appear, luring in masses of butterflies. Deer tend not to eat spirea. Spiraea x bumalda ‘Goldflame’
