Bullata Dwarf Japanese Spirea - Spirea japonica 'Bullata'

Regular price $18.99

The Bullata Dwarf Japanese Spiraea is a charmer! It's awesome tiny foliage is a lovely dark, rich green and stays in scale. The tiny,wavy-edged leaves are deeply veined on this globe-shaped shrub that makes the perfect back-drop for the rose-crimson flower clusters that come out in springtime.

Shear the flowers after they fade for a second round of blooming. You can shear the entire again in late winter to slow the growth-rate down even more. BUT if you forget - it is STILL a perfect fit because all the branches, leaves and flowers stay in scale.

I told you it was awesome. :o)

Versatile! Can be grown in Zones 4 through 9. 

**Second photo is shown flowering is what you get when you DON'T prune it. As a miniature garden plant, we can shear it back after flowering and in the late winter to slow down the growth rate so it will stay in our mini garden scene.**
