Spirea Double Play Doozie®
Proven Winners Double Play Doozie®:
Double Play Doozie spirea the most beautiful, innovative, ground-breaking spirea to ever grace a landscape. Like all of the Double Play® spirea series, the show begins in early spring when the foliage emerges in blazing brilliant deep red. By late spring the flowers begin to emerge; a bright, glowing purple-red that truly sings in the landscape. As summer comes on, the show doesn’t stop: it just keeps flowering and flowering and flowering. Because it produces no seeds, it puts all of its energy into flowering! It does it all with the same good looks, drought tolerance and deer resistance that you expect from spirea, too.

Novice and experienced gardeners alike love spirea bushes for their eye-catching beauty, fast growth rate, hardiness and ease of care. Like hydrangea, rhododendron and lilac, spirea has joined the ranks as one of the most popular flowering shrubs for the home garden. Their long-lasting blooms and ability to serve a variety of landscape functions — from mass plantings and perennial borders to groundcovers and informal hedges — have made them a staple in gardens of all sizes. If you’re only familiar with the traditional bridal wreath spirea, a large shrub that can become ungainly if not pruned, you’ll love the versatility and carefree nature of the newer spirea cultivars showcased at Moss Greenhouses. They not only have tidier growth habits but also more vibrant foliage, so they provide seasonal interest even when not in bloom.
