Spiraea 'Tracy' USPP 21,588; CBR 4073

 

The Double Play® Big Bang Spirea shows off plenty of colors with its beautiful yellow foliage which develops an orange and red color in the spring, and its pink flowers which bloom from spring to summer attract hummingbirds and are some of the largest of any spirea variety. Although this compact plant needs a good amount of sun and does not like heat, it requires very little maintenance.

Spireas work great in mass plantings, they work great for borders, and they look incredible in containers. The colors of this shrub will look great anywhere in a yard and is a great way to compliment a beautiful landscape.

Joseph's Take

I love Spirea and plant them a lot. They love a hard trim in the winter as they will pop back out more full and colorful the following year. Proven Winners Spirea in particular have more vibrant colors in both leaf and flower than the older spirea. One thing that noone ever really talks about is their fall leaf change, it can be a deep red, a bright orange, or a pale yellow. Spirea are also as tough , they can handle really cold temps so I like that too.
