Growing and Maintenance Tips

Spirea is a popular plant because it is very low maintenance, and the 'Double Play' series are some of the best. They naturally take on a nice, rounded habit without pruning. If you wish, you can give them a trim after the flowers fade, which will encourage even more colorful new growth and heavy repeat flowering. Double Play® spiraea are typically ignored by deer and even rabbits, and are quite drought tolerant after a year or two in the ground.
