Spiraea – Double Play Doozie®
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Double Play Doozie is as low maintenance as other spirea. You can give it a light trim after its first bloom in late spring if you'd like to see a reflush of the bright red new growth. Remove the oldest, woodiest stems every couple of years or so to keep growth fresh and vigorous.
Spirea is a landscaping classic, thanks to its neat, mounded habit. It makes a nice edging, accent plant, or perennial garden companion. In the landscape, plant in multiples of 3 for an eye-catching display.
