Hydrangea paniculata Quick Fire Fab™
Welcome to Saunders Brothers
A Family Tradition
Since 1915 when brothers Sam, Dick, Doc, William, and Massie formed a partnership, family has been the center of our business. The brothers stood for integrity, morality and honesty. Business deals were made with a handshake or by a man’s word.
Spirea is an old landscape staple, so what could one do that could possible earn it superlatives? Well, seedless and non-invasive would be a start; non-stop blooming would be even better. And these are exactly what makes Double Play Doozie spirea the most beautiful, innovative, ground-breaking spirea to ever grace a landscape. Like all of the Double Play® spirea series, the show begins in early spring, when the foliage emerges in blazing brilliant color - in this case, deep red. By late spring, the flowers begin to emerge, a bright, glowing purple-red that truly sings in the landscape. And as summer comes on, the show doesn't stop: it just keeps flowering, and flowering, and flowering. Because it produces no seeds, it puts all of its energy into flowering! It does it all with the same good looks, drought tolerance, and deer resistance that you expect from spirea, too.
Reddish-brown feathery spikes resembling foxtails bloom in late summer above attractive mounds of arching, bright green leaves. Creates an excellent fall effect.
Petite 1" flowers with dark purple upper petals and lavender lower petals with a small deep purple blotch forming compact mounds of colorful, cheerful flowers. Extremely weather tolerant. Prolific bloomers.
Green foliage with red tips turns wine-colored in the fall. An underused native species with open, airy blooms that are beautiful in dried flower arrangements. Very drought tolerant once established.
