One of my favourite Spireas in the garden is Spirea thunbergii 'Mellow Yellow'. This photo was taken in mid-march. The flowers are produced along the entire length of the branch and are followed by bright yellow green leaves. I keep them in a location of morning sun and afternoon shade because the foliage can burn in summer. Yearly light pruning after blooming keeps at its best shape.
