Japanese spirea comes by its popularity earnestly: durable, super easy to care for, and perfectly pretty pink flowers in spring. Double Play Big Bang® spirea does the landscape classic one better with the biggest, pinkest flowers of any Japanese spirea. It also offers super colorful new growth, especially when it emerges in early spring. That’s what makes it a perfect Double Play! Like other Japanese spirea, it’s drought tolerant, deer resistant, grows and blooms well in partial shade, and maintains a nice, neat shape without pruning.

This is an outstanding landscape plant! It is perfect for mass plantings or as part of the mixed border. Very little maintenance is needed. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in spring, and trim as needed to shape. Deadhead after flowering to encourage repeat blooming.
