Description:  Sundrop Spirea will add sunshine to any border. It produces beautiful sprays of pink flowers that stand out against its golden petite foliage. A natural dwarf with a rounded habit, it requires little pruning. The golden foliage holds its golden-yellow color even in summer heat. Sundrop is hardier that most golden spiraea.
