Glow Girl® Spirea
3-Season Color and Spring Flowers
Your Glow Girl Spirea, Spiraea betulifolia ‘Tor Gold’, is a deciduous shrub with ornamental features. A few of these would be perfect for a colorful, low-growing hedge along your sidewalk. Glow Girl would also do well along the edge of your flower bed, or place a few in containers for your back patio. No matter where you place these versatile shrubs, you’re sure to enjoy the vibrant splash of color they’ll bring to your home this year.
Your Glow Girl Spirea, just as the name implies, will “glow” with color from spring through fall. It all begins when the vibrate foliage celebrates spring with a delightful, reddish tint to its light green foliage. The eye-catching display will soon become dotted with tiny buds, dusted in scarlet, that open mid-spring into ¾-inch corymbs of pristine white.
Your yard’s pollinators will appreciate these early flowers as much as you, especially as they persist into early summer. You may even prolong your blooms with some simple deadheading after the blooms have faded. As summer progresses, your lime green foliage will adopt an elegant golden tone until turning brilliant orange for autumn…a brilliant send-off as winter approaches.
Glow Girl Spirea will grow up to 4 feet in height with an equal spread. It has a mounded habit with a compact form. Glow Girl is quite hardy and can adapt to a variety of soils. Butterflies and birds enjoy its flowers, but deer tend to pass it by.
If you’re looking for a tough little shrub that won’t require much care, and yet provide color for your yard in three seasons, Glow Girl Spirea is a great choice. Not only will it be a variable and lively dash of color spring through fall, but it will even grace your yard with enchanting spring flowers. Plant one today and begin enjoying the grace and color of this remarkable shrub.
