Seductive caramel-orange foliage growing in the form of an inviting cushion

Description

The Spiraea japonica Zen'Spirit® Caramel is a small bush with a compact habit that forms dense, rounded cushions. This new variety is notable for its young caramel-orange foliage that persists for several weeks in spring before turning green. Pruning will encourage a repeat performance. In autumn the foliage develops beautiful red tints. Its flowering is typical of Japanese Spiraea: in summer the bouquets of flowers in purple-pink corymbs emerge above the foliage. Once well-established, it tolerates brief periods of drought and a little lime. Zen'Spirit® Caramel is an easy plant that requires limited attention. It grows to a limited height (40 to 60 cms). Its restrained development makes it ideal for rockeries, flowerbed borders, terraces, low hedges or tubs.

Care

At the end of Winter cut back the stems to 10-15 cm from the soil. In the first year water abundantly and regularly.
