Curt snagged this shot of the rock garden with his phone on Saturday.
If I recall the plant I planted in front of the daffodils is Spiraea japonica ‘Golden Elf’ / Golden Elf Japanese Spirea
Hardy in zones 4-9. This yellow leaved cutie only grows to 6-8 inches high and has a spreading habit (12-24″). She has a pink late-spring to early summer blooms and keeps her yellow leaves through to fall. Deer resistant too!
I’ll admit the daffodils came with the rock garden planted by the previous owner… hence the Golden Elf perfect combo happened quite by accident. But I’ll embrace it!
