Spirea - Flaming Mound
Compact Caliope of Color
The Flaming Mound Spiraea, Spiraea japonica 'Flaming Mound', is a medium compact bushy plant with foliage that emerges flaming red. It then ages to a golden yellow.
In summer, showy, deep pink flowers are borne on upright, rounded corymbs to 4 inches in diameter. The small, showy, long lasting flowers are a stunning contrast against the bright foliage.
'Flaming Mound' will re-bloom if deadheaded, and it has excellent coppery-orange-red fall color.
Preferring full sun and well drained soil, this spirea is fast growing up to 2' high with an equal spread and is good for filling a space in a shrub border.
It is recommended that it will benefit from severe spring pruning every couple of years. For a neater look and better secondary bloom, remove old blossom heads in June.
