Spirea ‘Double Play Candy Corn’
Meet the newest and most colorful Proven Winners spirea, Double Play Candy Corn. The show starts in early spring when the new growth emerges bright candy apple red. As it matures, it turns pineapple yellow, and the new growth continues to emerge bright orange all season. Top it off with dark purple flowers in late spring/early summer, and you’ve got a display you really have to see to believe.
TIPS ON CARE:
- Sun to part shade
- Blooms late spring through fall
- Prepare the soil by mixing 2/3 soil, 1/3 White Oak Organic Planting Mix and the recommended amount of Bio-Tone Starter Plus fertilizer
- Check the plant for water every 3-4 days. If the soil under the mulch is dry go ahead and give it a good drink
- Add a 2″ layer of mulch, being sure mulch does not come into contact with the trunk
