A showstopping landscape shrub like no other- this magnificent rebloomer features foliage that starts out a bright candy apple red shade, turning bright yellow while the flowers emerge a stunning red-violet colour. Because it does not produce seeds, all of the spiraeas energy goes into flowering, so it has seasons-long interest. Moderate growth rate.
