Double Play® Red Spirea
Only spirea with true red flowers!
Do you have a garden trouble spot? Probably. Most of us do. Do you want a beautiful plant to fill it? Spirea Double Play Red might be the solution that you’re looking for. Spirea is a great garden plant. It is an ideal plant for difficult areas in your landscape where you have not had any luck with other plants. Drought? Wind? Poor soil? Salt spray? Double Play Red doesn’t bat an eye. This is one of the easiest shrubs you can grow.
‘Easy’ sometimes equals ‘boring’. Not in this case! Double Play Red knocks your socks off with its colorful foliage and vibrant flowers. (That’s the double play. Get it?) This small shrub has a big personality. It grows 2-3 feet high and wide and is covered in color-changing leaves – it starts out with burgundy-red leaves in the spring that turn to deep green during the summer and on through the fall. In the spring it blooms with tons of clusters of true red flower heads – the only true red of any spirea. The beautiful flowers attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds setting your garden in motion all summer long.
Double Play Red doesn’t require any pruning to keep its nice mounded shape and resists deer and disease. This is one vigorous, easy care shrub. Don’t let that tough spot be a burden any longer. Order your own Spirea Double Play Red today!
