The Blue Kazoo® Spirea, part of the Double Play® Spirea group, is a new variety of Japanese Spirea with colorful foliage from spring to fall. The spring shoots are a remarkable blue-green color, shaded with bronzy tones – a great way to welcome a new gardening season. The bronze fades, but the cool blue-green lasts all summer. In fall the leaves turn brilliant reds, making a striking fall display. As well, in summer the bush is covered with a continuous display of ice-white flowers. The combination of both blue foliage and white flowers really is a ‘double play’, with two features rolled into one plant. It grows into a bush 2 to 3 feet tall, and the same across, making it ideal for smaller gardens. Use it in larger gardens for edging, or for planting in groups to make drifts of color. It is also the perfect choice to make low hedges along paths and drives, or around trees. For easy care and dramatic colors, this plant can’t be beaten.

  • Striking foliage colors for three seasons
  • Blue-green foliage in spring and summer
  • Bronzy tones in spring and brilliant reds in fall
  • Easily grown in any and every garden
  • Hardy to minus 30 – ideal for colder regions

The Blue Kazoo® Spirea grows from the coldest parts of zone 4 all the way to zone 9, so it can be grown almost anywhere in the country. Plant it in a sunny or in a lightly shaded location. It will grow in all soil types except for flooded, wet ones, and it will tolerate dry conditions once it is established. This is a plant with no pests or diseases of any importance, and it can be left to grow naturally or trimmed to keep it neater if you wish.
