Double Play Doozie Spirea is a deciduous shrub that is known for its long-lasting, vibrant flowers and compact habit. It is a hybrid plant, developed by crossing two species of spirea, Spiraea japonica and Spiraea albiflora.
This shrub typically grows to a height of around 2-3 feet and has a similar spread. It produces clusters of pink flowers from late spring through early summer, which are larger and more numerous than those of many other spirea cultivars. The flowers are also notable for their ability to rebloom throughout the growing season if they are deadheaded.
Double Play Doozie Spirea has attractive foliage as well, with deep green leaves that have a glossy, leathery texture. The leaves turn shades of orange and red in the fall. This shrub prefers moist, well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight, and it can be pruned after flowering to promote new growth and maintain its shape.
Overall, Double Play Doozie Spirea is a relatively low-maintenance plant that provides beautiful flowers and foliage throughout the growing season. It is also generally resistant to pests and diseases, making it a great choice for gardeners looking for an easy-to-care-for shrub.
