Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionGet your hands on the first-ever reblooming spirea! Double Play Doozie® spirea (Spirea hybrid) is a truly innovative new introduction from Proven Winners that was years in development. It does not set seed, so it just keeps flowering and flowering and flowering. Yet it's just as easy-care and durable as you expect a spirea to be – deer resistant, drought tolerant, shade tolerant, and just all-around tough.
Double Play Doozie spirea has a bit more of an upright habit than conventional spirea, making it perfect for a non-stop blooming low hedge, or mixing into your perennial garden. It blooms in early summer along with conventional spirea, then continues to put out dozens of new blooms through frost. In early spring, new growth emerges a dramatic red for extra color and beauty. It's the high performance, low maintenance flowering shrub you've been looking for.DetailsBotanical name:Spiraea x 'NCSX2' Patent #: USPP 30,953 Common name: Spirea Zone: 3 - 8 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 2-3' Flower color: Bright pink-red Foliage color: Green, with red new growth Season of Interest: Spring-fall Bloom time: Summer Features: Proven winners, low flammability, drought tolerant, cold tolerant, best for beginners Uses: Specimen, hedge, perennial gardens, landscaping. How To GrowSoil: Not finicky about soil, as long as it is well drained. Tolerates dry conditions once established. Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part-sun (4-6 hrs of sun/day). Water: Average. Space: 2-3' apart. Fertilizing: Little needed. Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring if desired. Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended; nothing else is needed. Maintenance & Pruning: Double Play spirea naturally grow with a neat, tidy habit and need little pruning. If desired, trim or prune after spring bloom; this will encourage a second flush of colorful new growth as well as remove the first round of spent flowers for a neater look.

Double Doozie Spirea
Last year I ordered these too late in the spring and they didn't make it and I received a full refund. This year I ordered them again earlier and they are doing great! I don't expect them to get huge and bloom much this year since they are setting in their roots but next year I think they will look beautiful and I'll repost pictures. The plants arrived in great shape and I planted them as soon as they arrived and they are thriving so far!! Very happy with my selection!
Seems good so far
So far so good
My first order didn't fare too well. The temps were just too hot! The replacements have done quite well so far. Service and communication has been excellent! Thanks!
