Double Play® Candy Corn™ Spirea Growing and Maintenance Tips

It naturally takes on a nice, rounded habit without pruning. If you wish, you can give it a trim after the flowers fade, which will encourage even more colourful new growth. They are quite drought tolerant after a year or two in the ground and are low maintenance.
