The natural climate of Georgia can be both enlivening and stressful for both the humans and plants that live there. While a homeowner can run inside for a cool drink or for some respite in an air-conditioned space, the plants that surround one’s home are not so lucky. In addition, water is a valuable resource that should not be wantonly squandered. For these reasons, it is very beneficial that a Georgia homeowner should develop a plan for his landscape that includes many a drought tolerant plant.
There are hundreds of drought resistant plants in the horticulturist’s repertoire but one of the finest is Goldmound Spirea. Suitable for a wide variety of applications, Spiraea japonica is most notably used as a landscape border, a ground cover and as a foundation cover for your home. In each instance, the plant’s minimal need for water helps neighboring shrubs and flowers and keeps your home’s foundation from drying out.
Goldmound Spirea has a rich gold color, maintains a low height and requires almost no maintenance. In short, it is an excellent choice for homeowners who want a colorful but hassle free landscape. Be sure to ask the landscape professionals at Outside Landscape Group about including this magnificent, drought tolerant plant in your Atlanta area home’s landscape design.
