Limemound Spiraea, bumalda
One of the reasons Spiraea, in general, are so excellent for the palette you use to paint your landscape is the wide range of colors and textures it can present throughout the year. Before the bright pink clusters of flower bud and bloom, bright yellow leaves sprout out from compact, dense branches into a shiny, attractive mound. As summer approaches, the yellow turns to bright lime green that gleams out of the landscape, speckled with now present compound pink flowers. After the flowers fade and autumn arrives, the leaves transition to beautiful shades of red and orange before eventually falling to the ground. It grows 2 to 3′ tall, spreading slightly wider than taller. Hardy and festive, this is an efficient way to add a wide range of colors to your landscape throughout the growing season.
