Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon'

At first glance this durable easy care shrub looks like a golden leaved willow. In fact, it is a less common form of Spirea which was introduced from Japan by Barry Yinger. (Thank you Barry!) In early Spring it produces clusters of white flowers which are quickly overwhelmed by the beautiful foliage. Plants grow 4' tall and 6' wide. Fall color is dramatic. The foliage takes on gold orange and red tones and linger on plants until Thanksgiving or later.
