Spiraea Double Play Doozie® is a deciduous perennial shrub offering three seasons of interest, blooming spring through fall, typically until the first frost. Truly unique and highly popular, Double Play Doozie® is the first-ever reblooming spirea, blooming on old and new wood. Borne in cone-shaped clusters, the deep red flowers are larger than other spirea. They have a slight, sweet fragrance and attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.

A classic landscape plant, spirea, also known as meadowsweet, is an all-around tough bush. Although Double Play Doozie® has the typical neat, mounded habit of spirea, it also has compact, dense branching; super-showy bright red new growth; and amazing fall color. It is a lovely specimen plant for beds; a great filler for a thriller-filler-spiller container garden; and an excellent choice for edging and borders.

Spiraea Double Play Doozie® is a triploid plant. Typical of triploid plants, it is vigorous, seedless, and sterile. Its flowers are larger, more colorful, and have a longer shelf life than those of their diploid counterparts. It also requires little or no deadheading.

Easy to grow, low maintenance, and cold hardy, Spiraea Double Play Doozie® prefers full to part sun and average medium moisture, well-drained soils; but it tolerates a wide range of soils, light shade, and drought. The plant is also deer resistant.
