Spirea Double Play® 'Artisan' - 3 Gal.


Spiraea japonica DOUBLE PLAY® 'Artisan'

You will love this plant from the moment it flushes in the spring with a burst of deep purple-red foliage color that sets the landscape ablaze! As the foliage matures to deep blue-green, it becomes very dense on this low, mounding, spreading shrub. Buds begin to appear in late May followed by a blast of deep, pure pink color starting in early June that is totally unlike any other Spiraea you'll see. To add to the uniqueness of the flower color, its bloom time far surpasses that of other similar types stretching into late August while displaying a magnetic personality when it comes to attracting butterflies to the summer garden. In autumn, 'Double Play Artist' keeps shining with rich fall foliage colors featuring deep shades of red. Plant it in groupings in any full sun, well drained location for an incredible 3 season color display.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!
