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

Description

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.

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.
