More Information

Description Double Play® Candy Corn® spiraea (Spiraea japonica) offers an ever-changing medley of foliage color, from bright candy apple red to candy corn orange and yellow-green; this deciduous shrub is a welcome color in the landscape, which is often dominated by green. Summer foliage color is determined by exposure, where leaves are darker in part shade, but a bright, cheerful yellow in sunny exposures. Butterfly loving dark purple flowers offer another jolt of color in late spring and early summer. A pleasing mounded form, it grows quickly to 18-24" tall and wide. No pruning is required, making it perfect for brightening up low-maintenance gardens. Plus, it's fairly adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, including clay and drought tolerant once established. Color performs admirably in high heat. Deer & Rabbits tend not to nibble.

not thriving

One of my Candy Corn Spirea is doing okay but the other is not doing as well despite all my efforts to help it. I'll keep trying to "revive" it but I'm afraid it might not make it.

We're sorry you're having trouble with your plants. Our team of horticulture experts would love to take a closer look. Please email your order number and pictures of your plants to claims@greatgardenplants.com to start the claims process. We look forward to helping! https://bit.ly/ggp-guarantee

Hoping it lives

Plant came delivered and it looked like it was completely dried out
Water it immediately and out in ground a few days later as per instruction
Still don’t k ow if it’s going to make it
Hasn’t perked up or looks CB like it might start growing

Thank you for your feedback! It’s surprisingly normal for newly transplanted plants to appear like they aren’t growing. That’s because most of the growth occurs below ground in their first year as they allocate more energy to root development. Once your plant is established, it will start investing more in shoot and flower development. All orders are covered by our 60-day guarantee, so please reach out to claims@greatgardenplants.com to start the claims process if necessary. Thank your for your feedback!

Beautiful

I am in the second spring with my candy corn spirea and it is beautiful. It is 2 feet tall and 18 inches wide. This beauty is always a topic of conversation with neighbors. We’ve even had people stop their cars when passing by the house. We tell them what it is and then send them your way!
