Variegated for extra va-va-voom! Taking color to a whole new level, Double Play® Painted Lady® spirea delivers brightly variegated yellow and green foliage and hot pink flowers in late spring. Great for perennial gardens, patio containers, or any place that can be enlivened with a splash of low-maintenance color. The variegation is very clean and stable. We introduced this variety developed by Minier Nursery in France based on dozens of requests from visitors who have seen it in our trial gardens.
