Little Princess Spirea

Little Princess Spirea is a deciduous flowering shrub.  This compact spirea only reaches three feet tall and wide when it is fully mature.  Since this is a compact variety, it works well in landscapes that do not have a lot of growing room.  This shrub works well as a specimen plant, or it can be installed in groupings.

Little Princess Spirea has light pink flower clusters that complement the lime green foliage.  This plant prefers moist, well-drained soil to thrive.  If you want to attract butterflies to your property, then consider installing a Little Princess Spirea in your landscape.

This spirea requires little maintenance. Since Little Princess Spirea is a small shrub, pruning is only necessary to trim stragglers. As with most spireas, this type also grows in a globe form. The best time to prune this shrub is after it is done flowering. As always, remove dead or damaged areas of the plant as soon as possible.

It is a good idea to spray spirea with a deer and rabbit repellent. In the winter, rabbits especially love to feed on this plant. A simple treatment of a repellent can avoid extensive destruction. Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent Concentrate, 40-oz
