This Spirea is simply peerless: the big flower heads boast a deep, true red like nothing the genus has ever seen! Compact and super large-flowered, it is a magnificent addition to the sunny border. Just ask the butterflies!

Just 2 to 3 feet high and wide, Double Play® Red packs a lot of color into very little space. The leaves are wide and gently serrated, standing out nicely. The blooms are flat-topped and very showy, bringing butterflies and bees on the wing throughout their season. (Hummingbirds don't mind an occasional sip of their nectar, either.) So much larger and showier than other Spirea cultivars, these true-red blooms are attention-getting from way across the sunny garden!

Double Play® Red needs no pruning, but if you want to shape it, do so right after it finishes blooming, since it will flower on new wood. Deer tend to leave it alone, and it forms a naturally plump, bushy shape that looks natural without being scraggly. Everything is just better on Double Play®!

This trouble-free cultivar handles drought, wind, salt, and pollution all with grace. Robust and adaptable, it even thrives in clay soil! Double Play® Red is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® plant, representing the true, tested cream of the crop. To become a Proven Winner®, a cultivar must display excellent health, vigor, and ease of culture in trial gardens around the world, as well as interesting new features. Double Play® Red was a shoo-in for this collection thanks to its tolerance of adversity and its revolutionary red color! You will love it. Zones 4 to 9.

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Impeccable Quality and Value – We Guarantee It!

At Wayside Gardens, “pedigreed plants” and “root strength” have always been watchwords. The Wayside Gardens impeccable plant quality begins with selecting only the finest new product offerings with improved plant features and numerous advantages for our gardening customers. These improved plant selections are then grown to our exacting quality standards by garden industry professionals. This produces superior plants with well developed root systems and healthy, vigorous plant growth habits. That is why we proudly guarantee all Wayside Gardens' products to perform as advertised, being of superior quality, true to type, and shipped properly.

Larger Containers & Well Established Root Systems

We use larger containers and grow bigger plants than other nurseries, leading to greater root strength. Where appropriate, Wayside Gardens propagates our plants vegetatively rather than from seed, to ensure the plants possess the correct form and are true to variety, like a true double form, as opposed to the single or semi-double forms that may result from seed propagation.
