Double Play® Blue Kazoo® Spirea is smothered in stunning clusters of white flowers at the ends of the branches from late spring to early summer. It has steel blue-variegated bluish-green foliage with hints of lavender which emerges burgundy in spring. The serrated pointy leaves turn an outstanding red in the fall.
Double Play® Blue Kazoo® Spirea is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
Double Play® Blue Kazoo® Spirea will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
