Limemound Spirea, Spiraea bumalda 'Limemound', is a low spreading plant with bright lemon-yellow foliage that matures to lime green on a dense, compact mounding form.
The sharply toothed leaves are lime green, lance-shaped, to 5 inches long. In the fall the foliage changes to an orange-red color with red stems.
This deciduous plant is good as a filler when used with other green-leafed plants, or is a great plant for massing.
Producing showy pink flat flower clusters all summer, Limemound takes little maintenance and is easy to grow. Prune in late winter or early spring, if needed.
Limemound prefers average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. It tolerates a wide range of soils. Remove faded flower clusters to promote additional bloom.
Use Limemound as a ground cover, in the perennial border, or over low walls or embankments.
