Plant of the Week: Glow Girl® Spirea

You Glow Girl!
This is the kind of plant that calls for high fives all around. Glow Girl® spirea is pretty, with multi-season appeal, and easy to grow. It will produce a very nice, consistent container plant without heavy pruning or laborious spacing. It's just as trouble free in the landscape; a light shearing after flowering is all it needs. 

Reddish buds produce crisp, pure white flowers in spring - just in time for garden center shoppers. It has attractive lemon-lime foliage all summer long, and will maintain its bright color without burning. In fall the foliage transforms to burgundy.

Glow Girl® spirea is hardy to USDA Zone 3, and grows 3-4' tall and wide. It will grow in either full sun or partial shade. This native plant has good deer-resistance.
