Growing and Maintenance Tips

Spirea love full sun, so provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Easy care, and low maintenance, they thrive in a wide range of soil types. Provide a post-bloom shearing if desired to remove dead blooms and encourage a second flush of flowers. Spirea will require regular watering until established. After that it is quite drought tolerant.
