Fun and colourful like those candy surprises you enjoyed as a child, Poprocks Rainbow Fizz is super fun to grow! The interesting foliage emerges as a copper tone then changes to yellow with red tips in spring and then completes the season by turning copper-red in the autumn.
Spiraea japonica, commonly called Japanese spirea, is a dense, upright, mounded, deciduous shrub that typically grows 4-6’ tall with a slightly larger spread. Its leaves are oval and sharply-toothed. Tiny, candy-pink flowers cover the foliage from late spring to mid-summer, with sparse and intermittent repeat bloom sometimes occurring. Flowers are attractive to butterflies.
