The Double Play Gold Spirea is renowned for its stunning golden foliage that emerges in spring and maintains its vibrant color throughout the season. Each leaf is a radiant shade of gold, creating a warm and luminous glow in your garden. As the seasons progress, the foliage develops a hint of red in the cooler months, providing additional visual interest and versatility.
In early summer, the Double Play Gold Spirea bursts into a profusion of showy pink flower clusters that cover the shrub in a dazzling display. These charming blooms attract butterflies and other pollinators, creating a vibrant and lively atmosphere in your garden. The flowers contrast beautifully against the golden foliage, adding an exquisite touch of elegance.
Standing at a compact height of 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) with a similar spread, the Double Play Gold Spirea has a dense and mounded form. This makes it an excellent choice for borders, mass plantings, or as a low hedge. Its compact size and vibrant color make it a versatile option for small gardens, containers, or mixed shrub borders.
Caring for the Double Play Gold Spirea is relatively easy, as it is a hardy and low-maintenance shrub. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and adapts well to various soil types. Regular pruning in late winter or early spring helps maintain its compact shape and promotes vigorous growth and abundant blooms.
