Spirea: Empire™ Northern Lights


Spiraea japonica

New growth emerges bright red in the spring maturing to gold accented with deep pink flower clusters from late spring through summer. Rich rust red and bronze shades give beautiful fall colour. A low and spreading growth habit is useful to break up swathes of green, in masses, or as a colourful border.
