If hot pink gives you the warm Fuzzies then the Froebelli spirea is just what the doctored ordered.
The froebelli Spirea is an upright, rounded shrub just smothered by small clusters of hot pink flowers offset against the bold blue-green foliage, which emerges bronze and turns bromze in fall; excellent in groupings and in the shrub border, needs full sun and well-drained soil
Froebelii Spirea features showy clusters of hot pink flowers in early July. It has attractive bluish-green foliage which emerges brick red in spring. The small serrated pointy leaves are ornamentally significant and turn an outstanding coppery-bronze in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The smooth brown bark is not particularly outstanding.
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.
Froebelii Spirea will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet and fills out right to the ground making it ideal for a front row in a multi-row planting or as a sidewalk border. 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 highly tolerant of urban pollution and thrives even in inner city environments.
