he vibrant tones of Anthony Waterer Spirea develops flowers that start out with an intense shade of carmine red. As the blooms age, they mellow into a deep rose pink. Flat-topped heads of rosy pink flowers cover this low, spreading shrub. New spring foliage is an attractive reddish purple. The foliage color matures to blue-green for summer. During most years in some areas, the plants can develop a deep burgundy fall color. This more compact form requires little pruning to maintain a neat size, making it ideal in the foreground of shrub borders. It can even be grown in outdoor on the balcony, porch, patio or deck. Anthony Waterer Spirea is a deciduous shrub, hardy in USDA zones 5 to 9.

Care
We've found that Spirea grow best in sun that is strong but not so strong that the roots on this plant get dried out. Spirea is a popular plant because it is blissfully low maintenance, and Double Play Candy Corn is no exception. 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.

Growth Habit
Anthony Waterer blooms in early summer or late spring but the foliage is as fascinating as the blooms. It usually gets to 3-4" both tall & wide at maturity.

Toxicity

Spirea are typically ignored by deer and even rabbits.
