Double Play Candy Corn® Spirea

Vibrant foliage color sets makes this a very bold spirea for landscapes. Candy apple red foliage emerges in spring, then transforms to pineapple yellow as the season progresses. Orange new growth in the summer continues to add color to landscapes, as do the dark purple-pink flowers in late spring.
