Double Play® Dolly™ Spirea Spiraea x
- Part Sun to Sun
Embrace a bold aesthetic with Double Play® Dolly™ spirea! The big color arrives early in spring as the new foliage fills in, lighting the small shrub up with blazing orange-red color. Foliage matures to a dazzling chartreuse color and in late spring, equally dazzling electric purple blooms arrive to make a truly eye-popping color combo. Its compact size fits nicely at the front of the border as edging or low hedging.

Spirea is a landscaping classic, thanks to its neat, mounded habit. It makes a nice edging, accent plant, or perennial garden companion. In the landscape, plant in multiples of 3 for an eye-catching display.Maintenance Notes:
Double Play Doozie is as low maintenance as other spirea. You can give it a light trim after its first bloom in late spring if you'd like to see a reflush of the bright red new growth. Remove the oldest, woodiest stems every couple of years or so to keep growth fresh and vigorous.Double Play® Dolly™ Spiraea x 'SMNSJSA' USPP 35,032, Can PBRAF
