FEATURES

This spirea is better than great - it's a doozie!

Spirea is an old landscape staple, so what could one do that could possible earn it superlatives? Well, seedless and non-invasive would be a start; non-stop blooming would be even better. And these are exactly what makes Double Play Doozie spirea the most beautiful, innovative, ground-breaking spirea to ever grace a landscape. Like all of the Double Play® spirea series, the show begins in early spring, when the foliage emerges in blazing brilliant color - in this case, deep red. By late spring, the flowers begin to emerge, a bright, glowing purple-red that truly sings in the landscape. And as summer comes on, the show doesn't stop: it just keeps flowering, and flowering, and flowering. Because it produces no seeds, it puts all of its energy into flowering! It does it all with the same good looks, drought tolerance, and deer resistance that you expect from spirea, too. 

Top reasons to grow Double Play Doozie® spirea:

- Non-invasive! Sets no seed so won't spread into the wild.

- Blooms non-stop - all the energy it would spend developing seed goes into blooming instead.

- Deer resistant and very hardy.

Maintenance Notes: 

Double Play Doozie is as low maintenance as other spirea. You can give it a light trim after its first bloom in late spring if you'd like to see a reflush of the bright red new growth. Remove the oldest, woodiest stems every couple of years or so to keep growth fresh and vigorous.
