Double Play spiraea has both bright flowers and colorful foliage. This compact, low mounded plant has vibrant golden foliage and an abundance of pure pink summer flowers. It adds easy, season long color to gardens with very little effort. Double Play Gold maintains its compact mounded shape with very little pruning, and has much brighter color than other gold spiraea varieties.
