Bumald Spireas are small, compact, deciduous shrub with light green, narrow leaves. Foliage emerges bronze-red and turns bronze-red again in the fall. Flowers are clusters of pink blooms in spring with a long-term bloom time. The Dolchica cultivar is known for deep serrations on leaf margins as well as a small, mounded form staying under 3’ tall. They prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates a variety of soils including very poor conditions. Re-blooms through the season if dead-headed. Flowers on new wood and can be pruned in late winter. Used often in small hedges and borders.
