'shirobana' with bright green leaves on slender stems that are blanketed with white, pink, and red bloom clusters in the summer for a multi-color effect. The dwarf mounded form is wonderful for use as a foundation plant and in low borders.
'neon flash' a beautiful spirea with nice green foliage & contrasting burgundy/red new growth in the spring. Has bright, intense dark pink blooms that seem to last a little longer than most spirea - and are plentiful!! A real standout when mass planted in a flower bed. Can be sheared/pruned to desired shape & size. Does best and has best color in full sun, but will accept partial shade as well.
