Description

Purple-red new growth.

Double Play® spiraea derive their name from the combination of colorful flowers and foliage. In addition to vibrant pink summer flowers, Double Play® Artisan® has rich purple-red new growth in spring. You'll get months of vibrant color from this adaptable, easy to grow plant. It maintains its compact, mounded shape with very little pruning, and has more vivid color than other spiraea varieties.
