Spiraea japonica MERLO ® Gold 'DAVCOP04'

Hardiness : hardy (-25°C)

Foliage : deciduous

Position : partial shade

 

A young bright red foliage, golden-yellow in summer, with an intense growth of dark pink flowers

Description

In spring, the foliage of Merlo® Gold has a remarkable intensity, mixing young firey-red shoots and small lemon-yellow leaves. In summer the foliage remains yellow. It has a naturally round and regular habit. In June Merlo® Gold is covered with a multitude of small dark red flowers. Removing the first faded corymbs will encourage a second flowering. Resistant to powdery mildew, this new spirea will mix wonderfully in beds with other shrubs or colourfully-leaved perennials.

Care

Prune at the end of winter to encourage the growth of young colourful shoots. The elimination of faded flowers after the first flowering will encourage the growth of new flowers and leaves.
