Spirea japonica 'Gold Flame' Average Height: 1-2 feet tall Hardiness: Zones 4-11, adaptable to most climates Aspect: Some shade, full sun in cooler climates Plant Spacing: 3-4 feet apart Leaves: Deciduous, bright golden leaves with flame-red new growth Flowers: Pink in mid summer, blooms on new wood
Very similar to Goldmound Spirea, Gold Flame Spirea has bright golden yellow foliage and pink flowers. However, the tips of each stem are bright orange or red giving it a much more interesting color pallet. This is best paired with blue or deep green colored plants like many Hosta varieties. If pairing with red or purple plants, Goldmound Spirea is usually a better choice.
Gold Flame Spirea looks its best when pruned into a formal shape in winter, although many people let their specimens choose their own shape with great success. Good for container gardening, will tolerate hard sites.

All my plants arrived safely, looked great and were promptly planted. Although I don't reside in the zone where spirea thrives, I've seen my neighbor grow it successfully.
Plants arriving safely is our business, so we guarantee all plants we ship. If your plant arrives damaged, please contact us within 15 days and we'll send out a replacement or refund right away. We extend the timeframe on our warranty in many cases, so if you ever have a problem please don't hesitate to contact us.
Depending on your location and the plant species/sizes, we ship either USPS 3 day or UPS Ground. We wash the soil off the roots of the plant species that don't mind, but for the more picky species (like most bamboos) we grow them in a soil-less mix and ship them with their root ball intact.
Generally, we get your plants shipped in 1-3 days. Send us a message if you would like us to delay your shipment.

We guarantee that our plants will arrive healthy and without significant damage from transport. Please open your plants as soon as they are received, water them well, and keep them in a shady spot until they dealt with. If any of the plants are damaged, please contact us within 15 days and we will get you a replacement sent out shortly. We certainly don't want you to be stuck with unhealthy plants. We do not guarantee plants that have been damaged after being received for not being watered, being left out in extreme cold or heat, or left in the box after delivery for an extended period of time.
We cannot accept return plants due to state pest and disease regulations. However, if you are unsatisfied with the plants you receive please contact us - we will issue a refund or send replacements for plants that do not fit the description within reason. Plant sizes will vary but we guarantee that all plants will be well rooted and established into their container unless otherwise noted and large enough to fill that container (i.e. you won't receive a plant that should be in a 4" pot as a one gallon plant). Refunds or replacements will be issued for damaged plants.
