Noteworthy Characteristics

We're always on the lookout for easy-care shrubs with great foliage that are drought tolerant and deer resistant. Ogon spirea is that and a whole lot more. Not only is it's bright yellow foliage stunning in the garden, it is one of the earliest-blooming shrubs and one of the last to lose its leaves.

In early spring, before its leaves have unfurled, its slender branches are covered with dazzling white flowers borne in numerous clusters. Its feathery leaves emerge a bright golden-yellow and gradually change to bright green during summer, creating a pleasing contrast with other, more stolid shrubs. In fall its leaves turn bright orange and remain on the plant up to Christmas time, depending on weather. Its twiggy, slender branches arch and flounce, giving the plant a uniquely soft textural quality.

Uses

Single specimen, groupings, flowering shrub borders, shrub borders, natural hedge, clipped formal hedge, home foundation plantings, erosion control on slopes and embankments, butterfly gardens, asian theme gardens, cottage gardens,
