Japanese Spiraea


With attractive foliage and a graceful habit, these hardy, deciduous flowering shrubs belong to the Rose family, and are easily grown in any fertile, somewhat moisture-retentive garden soil.

Spiraea japonica ‘Bullata’ full sun  partial shade

An unsung heirloom hero that dates back to 1881, this diminutive darling deserves more attention. Close-knit twiggy growth clad in tiny crinkled dark green deciduous leaves sculpts a compact, yet broad tailored foundation with big clusters of lipstick pretty, deep rosy crimson flowers. Undemanding ‘Bullata’ is custom-made for patio containers, a rock garden or the front lines, either in a border or along a path.

Size: 16"–2' 0" high x 20"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
