This cheeky, pinky, shrub brings charm and cheer to the summer garden. The Little Bonnie™ Dwarf Spiraea (Spiraea x bumalda 'BL0601') may be petite, but it packs a powerful punch of blooms. It also features lovely foliage that holds its own among other garden greenery.
Little Bonnie Dwarf Spiraea comes alive with compound umbels of dreamy pinkish-purple flowers from spring and into summer. This delightful addition to the garden produces more flowers than other spiraeas, and its blooming season lasts far beyond theirs as well. The Little Bonnie Dwarf Spiraea will truly adorn your garden with more color and blooms than you can imagine.
Along with its bright flowers, many gardeners appreciate the Little Bonnie's blue-green foliage that spreads to cover a wide area. With dense leaf cover, this deciduous shrub's lance-shaped foliage makes the ideal backdrop for flowers. When fall arrives, you may fall just a bit harder for these leaves as they erupt in a stunning fall show, turning yellow, orange, and red.
Sometimes referred to as "meadowsweets" or "steeplebushes," spiraeas like the Little Bonnie Dwarf makes for an excellent border. As a dwarf, this cultivar looks lovely as a front or middle border. It will also add drama and brilliance to your butterfly garden, cottage garden, or as a floriferous groundcover.
Just be sure you plant your Little Bonnie Dwarf Spiraea in full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil. Pair it with spring-blooming bulbs for a fanciful showing of vibrant flowers.
A quick late winter or early spring prune to reduce the size and to make uniform. The flowers are born on new wood. After the first round of blooms finish, a light trim to remove the old flowers will encourage another round of blooms.
There's not little about the Little Bonnie Dwarf Spiraea's impact on your garden. If you're ready to fall for one of the most fantastic spiraeas you can find, order your Little Bonnies before they sell out.
