Maintenance Notes: 

Spirea is a popular plant because it is blissfully low maintenance, and Double Play Candy Corn is no exception. It naturally takes on a nice, rounded habit without pruning. If you wish, you can give it a trim after the flowers fade, which will encourage even more colorful new growth.

Double Play® spiraea are typically ignored by deer and even rabbits, and are quite drought tolerant after a year or two in the ground.

Fun Facts: 

Though you wouldn't guess it by looking at it, spiraea is closely related to roses and raspberries.
