Flaming Mound Spirea
Compact Explosion of Color
Flaming Mound Spiraea is a deciduous shrub with ornamental features. It would look particularly stunning planted en masse, in a rock garden or perhaps even as a single planting in your perennial bed amid less-colorful plants.
Your Flaming Mound Spiraea has a lot to offer for such a diminutive shrub. Just as its name implies, it will appear as a ‘flaming mound” of brilliant color in your landscape. You’ll adore the colorful foliage this remarkable, little shrub provides.
Each tiny leaf begins life with a blazing red shade, transitioning to yellow and returning again to red for autumn. The contrast of the summer foliage with the long-lasting flowers is exquisite. Large, 4-inch round corymbs of deep pink flowers adorn Flaming Mound from late spring and into summer, blanketing it in color and texture.
You can extend the bloom of your Flaming Mound with some simple deadheading, but the lovely foliage will continue to provide interest even after the flowers have faded.
Flaming Mound Spiraea will grow to 2 feet in height with an equal spread. It’s known for its dwarf habit and has a mounding form. Flaming Mound is adaptive to a variety of conditions and is quite hardy overall. It’s considered a fast-growing shrub so you won’t have to wait long to see results, and the flowers are even useful for craft projects (or just used as a floral display on your kitchen table).
There are so many fabulous features of Flaming Mound Spiraea that it’s easy to suggest that most gardeners will want one for their yards. Under ideal conditions, it will even live up to 20 years so it’s a great investment in an ornamental shrub that is fast-growing, hardy and beautiful.
