Planting Pros Recommend:

A burst of refreshing effervescence for your garden! The Poprocks® Spirea (Spiraea japonica 'Odessa') is a bright and colorful shrub with a naturally compact and round form and amazing cold tolerance! Hot pinkish-purple blooms with a soda-pop spray of stamen give the flowers a fizzy appearance!

Staying as an easy to manage 2-3 feet in height and width, these round shrubs and neat and tidy, requiring little maintenance to keep them that way! The mounds are densely packed with dark green leaves, each with delicate toothy edges. The foliage becomes the perfect backdrop for the bubblegum pink flowers that form fizzy clusters at the tops of each of the many branches!

Poprocks® is not just eye-candy for you and your garden, but also for your many visiting butterflies and bees that will drop by for the refreshing nectar and pollen resources. The fruit punch-colored buds and flowers are just the icing on the cake for this easy-to-care-for shrub!

Planting and Application:

For a vivid pop of color, add a couple to your mixed-shrub borders, or elevate the color palette of a Cottage border! Pollinator gardens, rock gardens and even in large pots and planters anywhere you need a burst of juicy pink color!

Create low borders and rows along property lines and your foundation evergreens to boost curb appeal! Low borders along walkways or your driveway for a bright welcome home, or plant specimen plantings around mailboxes, highlight a fancy urn or sculpture, or around a flagpole or birdfeeder to make them stand out!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Spirea bushes love full sun, so provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Easy care, low maintenance, they only need moderate annual fertilizer and average soil moisture. Provide a post-bloom shearing if desired to remove dead blooms and encourage a second flush of flowers.

  • Full Sun - Minimum 6 Hours Direct Sunlight
  • Moderately Moist Soil
  • Prune Late Winter/Very Early Spring
  • Cold Hardy
  • Low Maintenance
