Spiraea is a low-maintenance red summer lime.
The flowering period lasts up to 4-5 months. During this phase, the shrub constantly produces new inflorescences. In autumn the foliage turns reddish brown. As this garden plant flowers on new wood, it is best to prune the plants to 15cm above the ground each year, so it can reach its growth height of about 60cm again after budbreak. Spring pruning is best done as early as March to avoid the early flowers possibly falling victim to pruning. If you prune the plant back a little after the first flowering, you will be rewarded with a second flowering season in late summer.
