Neon Flash Spirea
Ornamental Shrub with Flashy Flowers
The Neon Flash Spirea is a fast-growing, small ornamental shrub. A few planted as a backdrop for your annual flower bed would look lovely, or plant just one in your perennial bed to give it definition.
The “Neon Flash” cultivar name of this Spirea plant refers to its flashy hot-pink clusters of flowers that will appear in your garden in the spring. Those flowers will continue to delight with their brilliance into early summer, attracting a variety of butterflies to your yard for a quick snack.
A nice feature of your Neon Flash is that with a little simple deadheading, it will bloom again for you later in the season.
The Neon Flash is all about color, even beyond its pink flowers. Even the 5 inch long, lance-shaped leaves demonstrate color when they appear in the spring with a reddish hue. Those leaves become fully green during the summer months, but then again provide a show of color in the fall with a deep burgundy.
The Neon Flash can grow up the 3 feet tall with an equal spread. It’s multi-stemmed and will grow to a somewhat rounded form without any pruning, but will adjust well to any shaping you wish to provide. When left to grow naturally, it fills out all the way to the ground with a full and lush form.
Fast-growing, hardy and full of color, the Neon Flash Spirea is a must for your yard this year.
