Quick Overview:

Are you looking to add color to your landscape? The Double Play Candy Corn Spirea is the plant for you! Enjoyment begins in the spring when new growth appears and is a brilliant red. As the new growth matures it turns bright yellow and new growth appears vividly orange. When you add in its deep purple flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer, you’ve got a plant that is show stopping. It is deer resistant and low maintenance.
