Spiraea cantonensis (Spirea 'Double Reeves')
Spirea ‘Double Reeves’ is a rounded deciduous shrub with gracefully weeping branches. It blooms in the spring, and even though the blooming period lasts only a few weeks, it is well worth having. When in bloom, ‘Double Reeves’ spirea is spectacular. Give it room to grow as it looks best when not hedged. If trimming to shape is necessary, it is best done selectively and right after flowering, before next year’s flower buds begin to form. It can take a partly shaded location but blooms best in a sunny location. ‘Double Reeves’ spirea works well as a specimen or anchor shrub, as a screen, or as a natural hedge.
