Ogon Spiraea (Spiraea thunbergii ‘Ogon’) is one plant every home could use. Why? Here’s five reasons:
1. It’s deer resistant (all Spiraeas are rarely, if ever, nibbled)
2. It has narrow, golden foliage (terrific for adding some contrast)
3. It blooms white (not the usual pink)
4. It’s good for the middle tier of borders and foundation plantings (grows to about 4′)
5. It has good fall color (yellow tinged with orange).
No wonder Ogon is a big seller!
