Two for one! Now that’s a deal we can all appreciate. This spirea is sure to  deliver. In early spring its graceful branches are covered with light and airy  white blossoms well before the bright yellow leaves appear. Like a  chameleon its leaves change color. As the spring fades and the leaves mature,  their color develops into more of a chartreuse green and delivers a final fiery  orange blast of color lasting well into the fall.  

A low maintenance, deciduous shrub that is both disease resistant and  drought tolerant. It is resistant to deer and insect damage as well making it  perfect to use out in the open landscape where you may want something  reliable that you do not have to worry about except for its minimum  requirements.  

Mellow Yellow Spiraea Care 

Mellow Yellow is a sun lover. It can take some shade but does best in full sun  where its leaves can develop the full potential of their color. Although  tolerant of most soil types it does best in a well drained soil where it can  receive average moisture.  

The plant requires little or no pruning except maybe to maintain a desired  height and shape. If pruning is done it should take place immediately after  flowering.  

Mellow Yellow Spiraea Spacing 

This spirea can reach a height and width of 3 to 5 feet making it an excellent  choice as an accent plant or for use as a mass planting along a garden border or fence. Plant these spirea at least 3 feet apart, center on center. And 5 feet apart if you are not making a border.
