In spring, Merlo® Star's foliage is remarkably intense, combining young orange-red shoots and little golden-yellow leaves. In summer the leaves turn a bright greeny-yellow. Its habit is very compact and round. In June, Merlo® Star is covered with a multitude of little dark pink flowers. Removing the first faded corymbs will help re-flowering. Resistant to powdery mildew, this new spirea will mix wonderfully in beds with other shrubs or colourfully-leaved perennials.
