(Spiraea) Very clean and colorful! Double Play® Gold is a compact, low-mounded beauty, has vibrant pure golden-yellow foliage and an abundance of pure pink flowers. The superb foliage flushes bright yellow before it matures to a golden-yellow color. In side-by-side trials with twenty other Spiraea selections Double Play® Gold shined above all others. Use as a replacement for Spiraea 'Gold Mound' or 'Magic Carpet'. Excellent flowering and foliage plant for landscapes use it in containers, perennial or shrub borders, and masses or groupings. One of the main goals of the Proven Winner® program is to extend a shrubs color interest beyond the date of flowering. The new Double Play® series does just that. In addition to vibrant flowers, these new introductions turn a double play by providing absolutely stunning foliage especially in the spring when they first break bud.
