#ProPlantTips for Care:

Spirea bushes do amazing in full sun, so situate yours in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Easy going on other care needs, just provide annual fertilizer, and a moderate, yet consistently moist soil location. Prune in late winter/very early spring, and provide a post-bloom shearing if desired to remove dead blooms and encourage a second flush of flowers.

  • Full Sun
  • Adatable Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Moderate Consistent Moisture
  • Low Maintenance
  • Very Cold Hardy
