Spirea 'Double Play® Big Bang™' - 3 Gal.


Spiraea Double Play 'Big Bang'

You may be familiar with the "Big Bang Theory of Nursery Sales Success". That's the theory that states: The bigger the flower power, the more your customers will buy the plant. Well, if that's true, Double Play® Big Bang will definitely offer your customers some serious bang for their buck. Its tight, dense, spreading form makes it a dream to work with in any sunny landscape situation and it will add a massive shot of shimmering orange color to the spring landscape as it flushes, starting off the season with a (Big) bang!! The foliage matures to glowing gold and each of its stems buds up in early June with buds opening later in the month producing massive flattened heads of bright pink flowers, bigger than you've seen on other lesser Spirea. Double Play® Big Bang is an easy care wonder that is deer proof, drought resistant and very rewarding.
