Golden Elf Spirea
The Golden Elf Spirea is a new dwarf spirea from Canada. It can be used as an edging plant or for paths or walkways. Or it is great for rock gardens, borders and mixing into your perennial garden! The Golden Elf will produce tiny pink flowers in small flat-topped clusters in late spring and you may see some sporadic rebloom in the summer. True to its name, the Gold Elf has bright golden foliage that stays low to the ground and sticks around all season!
The Golden Elf Spirea (spiraea x bumalda) will grow to about 8 inches at maturity and will spread to 18 inches. It will fill out right to the ground and therefore does not require facer plants. This shrub grows at a medium rate and, under ideal conditions, can live to approximately 20 years. The Golden Elf is not particular to soil type.
