Double Play Gold Spirea
Double Play Gold Spirea is a great shrub that would fit well in many different locations in your landscape. It is a small shrub, giving it the opportunity to be placed where larger plants would not work. This plant is perfect for borders or walkways and for providing an accent to larger plants in many different areas. It grows in a very compact, mounded fashion, with a densely branched structure giving the plant a very nice, full look overall. The leaves are small, about 2 inches long, and are oval in shape with serrated edges. The foliage emerges a light yellow color in the spring, maturing to a greenish-yellow color over the summer months. In the fall the leaves turn a wonderful golden yellow color. The flowers bloom in profusion in the late spring. They form in rounded clusters all over the shrub. The individual flowers are a bright pink color and very small. After the blooms are spent, they should be removed for the opportunity for re-blooming to occur.
Spiraea japonica ‘Yan’ grows to a height of 18 to 24 inches, with a similar spread. It is recommended for climate zones 3 to 8. It grows best in full sunlight. Double Play Gold grows best in well drained soils with moderate amounts of moisture, but it is fairly adaptable to most growing conditions. Trimming should occur in the late winter to early spring time.
