First Editions® Superstar™ Spirea has been on the market since 2010 and has quickly become a show stopper! A dwarf variety with three season appeal, in spring new leaves emerge scarlet red and then migrate to green—it is as if the plant is in bloom! Thoughout summer expect Superstar to produce pink blooms, then in autumn the foilage turns copper colored. Wow! Although the literature says minimal pruning is needed, our grower consultant says to get the best spring time wow factor, prune back to 8 inches or so in late winter/early spring.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
