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.

I’ve been extremely happy with all the plants purchased through Great Garden Plants until now. I have ordered 3 and they just didn’t thrive and stalled. So I ordered 3 more to replace and they too have stalled and just look sad. Planted in part sun and on drip irrigation. The Double Play Doozie’s planted this Spring have already doubled in size and look extremely happy.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. It is so hard to say for certain why you are not seeing a much growth as you'd like. It sounds like you are doing a great job caring for your new plants. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Happy Gardening!
