Main asset

The most compact of all ground cover Spirea, with improbable colors throughout the growing season. Resistant to sun and powdery mildew.


Prune shortly in late winter to encourage a vigorous and colorful growth.


This French selection (Jean-Paul Davasse) has a young foliage red becoming golden yellow in summer. Flowering in pink corymbs in late spring contrasts with the light foliage. In summer, the foliage remains yellow, the young shoots remaining red and purple if the growth is maintained.
