Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon' ('Mellow Yellow')

I like it for foliar texture, the chartreusy yellow color of the leaves in season, and this good fall color. This particular planting began life as a trio. After a few years they began to crowd each other so this spring I transplanted the other two. One went across the street and past the weeping Katsura, the other across the street from that one. Now there's a golden triangle to step you visually through the area. Nothing subtle about my designs.
