Planting Pros Recommend:

Elegant and colorful blooms on a pretty little shrub, the Little Princess Spirea (Spiraea japonica 'Little Princess') is a highly ornamental flowering shrub that is fuss-free for any yard or garden! Profuse pink flowers in small corymbs cover the arching stems of this plant in late spring. Flowers and leaves all appear on the same side of the arching branches. Finely textured foliage appears and fills out the entire shrub all growing season!

Butterflies adore the flowers! And Little Princess Spirea has those in profusion! The foamy and fizzy-looking bright pink blossoms appear in clusters of tiny smaller blooms. These are gorgeous accent shrubs that are adaptable, hardy and exquisite!

This Little Princess Spirea cultivar is a dense, upright, compact, mounded deciduous shrub that has narrow, dark blue-green foliage. Featuring yellow fall color and thick branching to stand up to winter snows, Spirea are tough little plants!

Planting and Application:

These small and tidy shrubs absolutely smother these plants for a long time and are fantastic ornamentals! Use as low hedges and borders, landscape edging and foundation plants that are so rugged, that even commercial landscapers use them quite often in their landscaping.

So it is a beautiful plant throughout the entire growing season! Add to pollinator gardens and cottage borders for color that you won't have to fuss over! Easy-care as well, Spirea only needs trimming once a year and some fertilizer to keep them happy.
