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.

Double Play Candy Corn. NEVER

NEVER have I received a planting in such bad shape. Died within a week. It had to have been a recent cutting as there were scant hair size roots absolutely no established root system on that cutting. Proven Winners would be completely mortified that you had sent a customer a cutting such as you sent me in one of their pots. SHAME ON YOU! I WILL NOT BE DOING ANY OTHER BUYING FROM GREAT GARDEN PLANTS. I DIDN'T PICK A STAR AS THERE WERE NO MINUS STARS. FOR SURE I AM UNSCRIBING!

Hello JoAnn, We apologize you received plants not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors like shipping and handling are outside of our control, causing issues like this to sometimes occur.

Not really satisfied

It came in not good condition, particularly dry because of long time sipping. I was planting it right away and now I don’t know if it’s alive or no, because outside cold and plants look with out foliage like die. We’ll see it when will be spring time.

We apologize that you received plants that are not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors, like shipping and handling, are outside our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. Most often, plants bounce back quickly once they've found a home in your garden. As it is the colder months, your new plant has most likely gone dormant. This does not mean your plant is dead but is just resting until spring. Rest assured, we have a guarantee on all our plants. Our fall guarantee covers plants received after September 1 until May 2023! https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/our-guarantee
