Garden Plant: Dakota Goldcharm Spirea
Product Description: Dakota Goldcharm Spirea
Compact Plant Displays Colors Dakota Goldcharm Spirea, spiraea japonica ‘ Mertyann’, has showy golden foliage that is accented by bright pink flowers blooming in early summer, repeating through the remainder of the season.
The foliage emerges bronze, turns yellow-gold in summer and develops a pink-red fall color.
Dakota Goldcharm Spirea is more or less a miniature version of Goldflame or Goldmound Spirea, with foliage that starts a deep red, fading to a yellowish green by late spring.
This certainly is a plant to locate at the front of a planting bed, otherwise it will be lost among the taller perennials and shrubs.
‘ Mertyann’ prefers loamy soil with full to partial sun.
This mounded shrub grows 15-18 inches tall with 2-3 foot spread.
Since it is so small, it can also be used as a ground cover.
Spireas are among the easiest flowering shrubs to grow since they are tolerant of many soils except extremely wet.
This plant also likes mulch and summer watering.
