Special Attributes

Double Play Spireas are know for both their colorful flowers and colorful foliage, and Double Play 'Artisan' Spirea doesn't disappoint. In spring, rich purple new growth sprouts from the tips of every stem. This new growth matures to green and is followed by loads of rounded, vibrant pink flower clusters in summer that the butterflies will flock to. If spent flowers are deadheaded you can expect a good rebloom. The plant maintains its compact, mounded form little if any pruning. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a low mound 2 to 2.5 feet tall and 2.5 to 3 feet wide, Double Play 'Artisan' Spirea fits nicely as an accent or in small groupings in small to medium size garden spaces. In larger landscape borders its brilliant foliage and flowers make for stunning large 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 welcome addition to butterfly gardens and container gardens.

Spacing:  2.5 feet for mass plantings;  5 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Double Play 'Artisan' Spirea is very easy to grow in a wide range of soils. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. For the best foliage color full to mostly sun is suggested. That said, 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 needed.
