Double Play® Artisan® Spirea

This is an improvement over older spirea varieties as it has rich spring foliage color and vibrant early summer flowers. The plant is a compact, full bodied mound with a very consistent habit that is excellent for mass plantings. It does not produce the unappealing albino shoots that ‘Anthony Waterer’ can.
