Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

With all the problems with Spirea ‘Goldflame’ reverting, Little Spark® will be the perfect substitution with an even more compact habit. This little spirea has orange new growth and holds its yellow foliage color throughout the summer, even in full sun situations. A summer bloomer, the pink flowers arise just above the foliage, and if you give them a quick shear when they are done, it will bloom again in late summer. Fall color includes shades of pink, creating a multi-toned effect. Bred by Minier.

Height: 18-24″. Spread: 18-30″. Shape: Rounded, spreading. Exposure: Full Sun to Part Shade. Foliage: Orange to yellow. Fall Foliage: Reddish-pink. Zone: 3-8.
