Project Description

Double Play Doozie® Spirea

Spiraea japonica ‘NCSX2’ USPPAF, CPBRAF

Bred by Dr. Thomas Ranney in North Carolina and introduced by Spring Meadow Nursery and Proven Winners.

Double Play Doozie® Spirea is a groundbreaking, non-invasive spirea. Its lack of seed also means it is a perpetual bloomer, putting all its energy into creating wave after wave of red-pink flowers from early summer through frost. No deadheading required! Naturally grows as a neat mound. Plant in sun or partial shade. Use for mass plantings, foundations, edging and flower beds. Adaptable to well-drained soils and seldom needs pruning; trim after flowering for a flush of colorful new growth. Hardy down to -40 F (-40 C). Zones 3–8.

Available as 1–3 gallon containers from Proven Winners (Booth 3049).
