The best shrubs are those that reward with both foliage and flowers, and the Double Play series of Spiraea just does that, offering a double season of interest with beautiful foliage colour and a long season of blooms. In early spring, the young foliage of Spiraea japonica ‘Double Play Doozie’ emerges deep red, awakening the garden landscape with its fiery tones that provide a great backdrop for spring bulbs. In late spring the flowers emerge a rich deep pink, reblooming throughout the summer and enticing a wealth of pollinating insects. The flowers don’t set seed so there’s no deadheading required, all the plant’s energy is concentrated into flower production and there’s no danger of it becoming invasive. Spiraea japonica ‘Double Play Doozie’ is a tough and versatile shrub that is perfect for structural planting or as a low, informal hedge. Height and spread: 60cm (24in). 

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
