Spiraea is an easy-to-care-for red summer lime
The flowering period lasts up to 4-5 months. During this phase, the shrub constantly produces new flowering stems. 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 that it can reach its height of about 60cm again after budding. Spring pruning is best done in March to prevent the early flowers from falling victim to the 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.
