Double Play® Red Spirea

Double Play® Red Spirea

The First and Only True Red Spirea!

Item # 36988
Ships in Fall at the proper planting time for your zone. View Schedule.

This Spirea is simply peerless: the big flower heads boast a deep, true red like nothing the genus has ever seen! Compact and super large-flowered, it is a magnificent addition to the sunny border. Just ask the butterflies!

Just 2 to 3 feet high and wide, Double Play® Red packs a lot of color into very little space. The leaves are wide and gently serrated, standing out nicely. The blooms are flat-topped and very showy, bringing butterflies and bees on the wing throughout their season. (Hummingbirds don't mind an occasional sip of their nectar, either.) So much larger and showier than other Spirea cultivars, these true-red blooms are attention-getting from way across the sunny garden!

Double Play® Red needs no pruning, but if you want to shape it, do so right after it finishes blooming, since it will flower on new wood. Deer tend to leave it alone, and it forms a naturally plump, bushy shape that looks natural without being scraggly. Everything is just better on Double Play®!

This trouble-free cultivar handles drought, wind, salt, and pollution all with grace. Robust and adaptable, it even thrives in clay soil! Double Play® Red is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® plant, representing the true, tested cream of the crop. To become a Proven Winner®, a cultivar must display excellent health, vigor, and ease of culture in trial gardens around the world, as well as interesting new features. Double Play® Red was a shoo-in for this collection thanks to its tolerance of adversity and its revolutionary red color! You will love it. Zones 4 to 9.
