Product Details

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 for your new Gold Mound Spirea

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.

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Healthy Golden Spirea
My plants arrived in excellent condition. They had a few light purple flowers beginning to come out when I received them. I planted them with Miracle Gro Tree and Shrub topsoil mixed with original soil from the hole. They are flourishing well and are blooming very nicely.

The colors look very attractive and have some color year round

This is a wonderful plant if you are looking for something that has a bright greenish-yellow leaf. You cannot miss this plant in a landscape. It creates great contrast against darker leaf trees.

do you trim down the spirea during the winter months in New England?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can touch them up but they do not need to be trimmed for winter.
Is this shrub the same as sunshine ligustrum?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: no, sunshine ligustrum is Ligustrum sinense 'Sunshine' and Spirea japonica 'Goldmound'. 2 completely different plants. The Ligustrum is evergreen and a mainly a warm weather plant while the spirea is deciduous but very cold hardy.
