About the Spiraea -
The Frobeli Spirea, Spiraea x bumalda, has new
foliage that is purplish with bright pink to red
early summer flowers. Vigorous grower with bright
purplish-pink flowers in June-July. It has purplish
tips on the foliage in spring.
Leaves turn purple in fall for a striking color

an upright, rounded shurb that is excellent as a
small hedge, and when not in bloom, it is still an
attractive neat plant.
