This is the most beautiful shrub. Last year, when I purchased it online and during Covid
Glow Girl® Birchleaf Spirea Spiraea betulifolia
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
An awesome plant for northern landscapes: a gold-leaf version of 'Tor'! Buds with hints of red in them open to white spring flowers. Sunny yellow foliage holds its color well, and the full, compact habit is very attractive. Also, it doesn't burn in the summer and has great fall color. If you're looking for a colorful, hardy plant that will look great all season, this is the variety for you! This extremely hardy and colorful plant is native to North America.

Cannot day enough about this shrub. It is a real standout in the mixed border! We had a tough winter and zero dieback Does well in our hot summers also. Hardiness aside, it’s a lovely plant. Beautiful shape and the color is a real standout — better than any other gold spirea I’ve had. I can’t recommend this plant enough. Truly a star that requires no fussing and a big payoff.Andrea Williams, British Columbia, Canada, 2 years ago
