No other shrub is a s low maintenance and rewarding for 3 seasons of the year as Goldflame Spirea. This deciduous shrub has a naturally compact and mounding shape that sports a virtual kaleidoscope of foliage from early spring through to late fall. The new leaves emerge as shiny bronze which quickly changes to red in the spring. The leaves mature throughout the summer in lemon and lime tones. Cooler weather in the fall brings on the fiery copper and red tones that will compliment any garden setting.

Goldflame Spirea has sprays of frothy pink blooms that will continue all summer if they are deadheaded on a regular basis. Native pollinators are drawn to Spirea in large numbers and the dense foliage is a welcome shelter for other small wildlife. Goldflame will make for a dramatic low growing, informal hedge along a driveway or fenceline. The bright colors contrast and compliment a wide range of perennials and other shrubs. Spirea looks great with Butterfly Bush, Shasta Daisy, Red Twig Dogwood and Rugosa Roses.

Goldflame Spirea Care

Goldflame Spirea will have the best color and grow most vigorously in a full sun site. Early morning or late afternoon shade is suitable. Pirea tolerates all types and textures of soil. Clay, loam or sand is equally good. Excellent drainage is a must as is consistent watering until the shrub is well established. At maturity, Goldflame will be fairly drought tolerant. 

Pruning is best done in the early spring as the new growth emerges. Cut out any winter damaged branches along with dead, dying and diseased growth. Fertilizing should also be done early in the spring with a well balanced, slow release food. Regular mulching in the fall with organic compost or leaves will help to enrich the soil over time. Watering with soaker hoses and drip irrigation will help to keep water off the leaves. Goldflame Spirea is resistant to mildews and molds.

Goldflame Spirea Spacing

Goldflame Spirea will look the most dramatic when planted in a large number or as a low growing, unclipped hedge. The mature height and width of Goldflame is 3-4 feet. Space the shrubs at 3 feet on center when planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
