Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Anthony Waterer Spirea is a well-known and valuable small shrub that is ideal for filling spaces in the garden with a long season of colorful flowers. Grow it in the foreground of your beds to finish them with lots of color and interest, without adding work. Among the most low-maintenance and hardy of all garden shrubs, it can be used to edge a driveway, soften the borders of a terrace, or plant a slope to prevent erosion. The leaves are purple in spring, and bright red in fall, and it grows to be about 3 feet tall and 4 feet across – the perfect size for good effect without taking over.

  • Flat heads of vibrant pink flowers from June to September
  • Foliage is purple in spring and red in fall
  • Very tough and easy to grow in any garden
  • Perfect for filling spaces and adding easy color
  • Pest and disease free, and ignored by deer

Plant the Anthony Waterer Spirea in full sun or partial shade, it will be happy in both. It grows even in zone 3, and it thrives in any garden soil, from sands to clays, just so long as the soil is not permanently flooded. Once established it is moderately drought-tolerant. It has no pests or diseases, tolerates urban conditions well, and deer leave it alone. A quick trim to tidy it up once or twice a year is all it takes to keep it looking great and working hard for you and your garden.
