Do you want to be the talk of the neighborhood this year? When others are planting for their orange, red and yellow fall color schemes, shake up the status quo with orange and red … with PINK!? Pink Sparker™ Spirea, (Spiraea betulifolia 'COURISPI01' PP27,933), blooms large round pink flower-heads at the tips of its stems in early spring. It looks amazing with other spring-flowering shrubs like white Dogwoods and lavender Lilacs.
But Pink Sparkler really sings in the fall when it reblooms with smaller blushing flowers that appear all up and down the stems at the leaf axis. Pollinators and butterflies love these rounded flower clusters! And as if the pink color isn't enough to give your garden a refresh, wait till you see the beautiful pinkish-burgundy hue the leaves turn when the weather chills. This burgundy-pink combo is so striking it is almost scandalous!
A type of Birchleaf Spirea, these have lovely foliages in a steady green most of the growing season, but it's the spring and fall color that really sets it apart from the rest! Add 'sparkling-water' looking fizzy baby pink blossoms, cold hardiness to USDA growing zones 3-8 and unique upright mounded growth - and you have an incredibly unique flowering ornamental shrub!
The size of this hardy shrub will fill up your garden with bold and unexpected colors, so give it pride of place in the back of a border or in a mixed foundation planting. A pop of fresh color in the mixed-shrub border and a hardy backdrop plant that accents everything else before it! These shrubs can be large enough for low privacy and screening, and as unique facer plants around larger shrubs and the trunks of trees.
Pollinator and cut flower gardens, Cottage borders, Rock gardens and focal points throughout the landscape, Spiraea are perfect low-maintenance gems for use anywhere in the garden! Dress up a driveway, sidewalk and pathway with three seasons of changing color to delight you with new sights throughout the growing season!
Plant Spirea in well-drained sunny locations that have moderate moisture. Provide a mulched bed to insulate the root zone and maintain moisture consistency. Cut back your Spirea in spring for massive clusters of blooms in late spring and again in summer when deadheaded. A trim will also keep your Spirea tidy. Just be sure it receives full or part sun and adequate water until established.
Be the first on your block to roll out the pink for fall. Let the neighbors talk. They're just jealous! Buy yours online today at NatureHills.com and start turning heads with truly unique fall color!
