How do Neon Flash, Anthony Waterer & Goldflamer spirea compare?

9 years ago

I just scored a Neon Flash spirea for $8 on clearance. They also had Goldflame and maybe 1 Anthony Waterer left as well.

How do these varieties compare?

I want to plant the spirea to act as a sunblock for a gold colored Heuchera which got sun scorched this summer by unanticipated sunlight streaming through the gap between my co-op and the next building. The plant can't be too wide, as it would possibly block the path between my garden and the building, and then the building manager would simply pull the spirea out of the ground and trash it. The Neon Flash I got today only gets about 3' wide, which is fine.
