Gardeners' Notes:

Positive bungalow1056 On Apr 5, 2010, bungalow1056 from Winston-Salem, NC (Zone 7b) wrote:

This is a great little Spirea variety. The bright, almost chartreuse green leaves are beautiful in and of themselves. They bud out early in April here in 7b. The flowers make a lovely show in May; the pinkish-purple blooms contrast beautifully with the light green foliage. Mine responds best when pruned in late winter (Feb).

Lime Mound Spiraea is a compact shrub with a mounding - almost cascading - habit. The foliage changes from chartreuse green in early spring to lime green in the summer. The soft pink flowers in spring are an added attraction. The foliage seems to glow in contrast to the darker greens of other plants - a bright spot in the garden. I really like this plant!
