Trim to shape in early spring. Deadheading after flowering will encourage reblooming later in the year.
The spring foliage emerges dark burgundy red, then matures to dark green. The early summer flowers are raspberry red. This variety has a darker, deeper color palette than other spirea varieties, making it a useful addition to the garden designer’s low-maintenance plant palette.
