Spirea Spot On™

Many seasons of interest with this new spiraea with the leaves changing color throughout the summer.

As warm breezes of summer are replaced by cooler temps, the many shades of Spot On™ will set your garden ablaze in vibrant hues of red and orange. An intriguing new Spirea with multi-season interest, early summer sprays of soft-pink flowers bloom in profusion on every tip of this well-mannered, mounding shrub. As summer progresses, cheerful maroon blotches appear on the leaves, intensifying in color like watermarks on a photo - distinguishing its unique qualities. Spot On produces little to no seed, posing no threat of invasiveness to the landscape. Selected by our friend and plant breeder extraordinaire, Michael Yanny at Johnson’s Nursery in Wisconsin, we’ve waited a long time for it to make its debut! This plant is sold exclusively through the First Editions® brand.
