Description: Sundrop Spirea will add sunshine to any border. It produces beautiful sprays of pink flowers that stand out against its golden petite foliage. A natural dwarf with a rounded habit, it requires little pruning. The golden foliage holds its golden-yellow color even in summer heat. Sundrop is hardier that most golden spiraea. Sundrop produces best color in full sun. Distinguished by their size, bloom color and season of bloom, spireas all have small leaves and fine, twiggy branches.
