Special Attributes

Anthony Waterer Spirea is a low-growing, mounding, flowering shrub that produces an abundance of beautiful, fuzzy, pinkish-purple flat-topped flowers from late spring through summer. If faded flowers are sheared you can expect a repeat bloom. The flowers are attractive to butterflies. Foliage takes on attractive red hues in Fall.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low mound 3-3.5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, Anthony Waterer Spirea is a dwarf that fits nicely in small garden spaces. In larger landscape borders its brilliant foliage and flowers make for stunning groupings or mass plantings. Also nice as a front facing plant to taller evergreens in home foundation plantings. Can be massed on sunny slopes for erosion control. A fine addition to butterfly gardens and container gardens.

Spacing:  3 feet for mass plantings;  4 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Japanese Spirea are very easy to grow in a wide range of soils. They prefer growing in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. For the best foliage color we suggest full to mostly sun, however plants will tolerate part to mostly shade. A light shearing of spent flowers after the summer bloom encourages heavier rebloom. Flowers on new wood, so prune in late winter to early spring if desired.
