Embrace a bold aesthetic with Double Play® Dolly spirea! The big coloViewr 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.

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.
