Little spark spirea with pink flowers

Discover More Information On Little Spark® Spirea

Little Spark® is a compact spirea with orange new growth that holds its yellow foliage color throughout the summer, even in full sun situations. A summer bloomer, the pink flowers arise just above the foliage; if you give them a quick shear when they are done, it will rebloom in late summer. Fall color includes shades of pink, creating a multi-toned effect. Little Spark® is a fantastic and more compact substitution for 'Goldflame,' which has shown consistent issues with foliage reversion.
