The Little Princess Spirea is one of the most popular dwarf shrub with showy flat-topped clusters of dusty pink flowers in early summer. Pruning the shrub not only creates a tight dense mound but forces the plant to rebloom.

This shrub is draped in stunning clusters of pink flowers at the ends of the branches from late spring to early summer. The emerald green foliage emerges chartreuse in spring and turns a spectacular coppery-bronze in the fall. Like all spireas, both the fruit and the bark is not worth writing home about

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

The Little Princess Spirea will grow to be about 18 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is tolerant of urban pollution.
