Double Play Candy Corn's 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 with purple flowers in spring. Deadheading is not necessary on this deer-resistant shrub.

  • 18-24 inches tall and wide at maturity
  • Grow in zones 4-7
  • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)

Care: It naturally takes on a nice, rounded habit without pruning. If you wish, you can give it a trim after the flowers fade, which will encourage even more colorful new growth. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring and mid-summer.

Fun fact: Though you wouldn't guess it by looking at it, spiraea is closely related to roses and raspberries.

      Perfect, so far.

      This Double Play Candy Corn Spirea is as perfect as advertised. It really stands out and it definitely draws the eyes. I'm confident it's bloom next spring will be something special. It's compact size is perfect for my small, suburban lot here in Maryland. Zone 7b
