Planting the spirea seems to have helped Midas Touch
When I saw my poor little Midas Touch, planted this year, get all sun scorched from the sun sneaking through the gap between my building and the next, I decided it needed its own sunscreen. I went shopping for a small shrub to shade it and come upon a beautiful dwarf spirea on 75% off--Neon Flash. I planted the spirea in direct line between the affected heuchie and the line of the sun about a week ago. Voila! I already see a whole cluster of new, unburnt leaves in the middle. Hopefully the spirea will ensure that Midas Touch gets to its full beauty next year.
