Fine-Textured, Ornamental Shrub

Crisp Leaf Spiraea is a deciduous shrub with bright, flashy flowers. Plant a few for a colorful and interesting groundcover, or anywhere you'd like something a bit different to fill in some empty spaces.

It's hard to know which is more stunning on this popular garden shrub, the magnificent flowers or incredible foliage. Large, flat-topped clusters of hot-pink flowers appear in late spring to early summer.

The leaves appear with a burgundy tinge, transitioning to a blue-tinted, green shade. Each leaf is pointed, with a crinkly appearance that seems to reference the "Crisp Leaf" moniker.

Autumn finds Crisp Leaf changing colors once again when the leaves take on shades of bronze for fall. The fine textured nature of this shrub makes it a perfect companion for less-refined plantings, bringing a bit more textural diversity to your landscape design.

Crisp Leaf Spiraea is a multi-stemmed shrub with a somewhat rounded nature and compact form. Crisp Leaf is adaptable to a variety of soils and drought, deer and urban tolerant. It's quite hardy and under ideal conditions can be expected to live up to 20 years.

Even without its spring/early summer blooms, Crisp Leaf Spiraea has a lot to offer. It's different from more common shrub options while still being hardy and easy to care for. Why not bring the unique texture, form and color of this wonderful shrub to your home this year!

  • Adaptive to a variety of soils
  • Autumn color
  • Long lived
