Double Play® Red Spirea

The spring foliage emerges dark burgundy red, then matures to dark green. The early summer flowers are raspberry red. This variety has a darker, deeper color palette than other spirea varieties, making it a useful addition to the garden designer’s low-maintenance plant palette.
