Thought I’d start a thread of this little spirea I picked up in spring. Early may to be exact. $23 I think. It’s development has been swift and has been very pleasing to watch. The new leaf to mature leaf contrast is just lovely and the first set of flowered are beginning to set. I was initially trying to stop the tree from flowering, but an article on B4ME suggested I let it flower then cut hard. That’s currently my plan. Next year I will bare root and find a more suitable pot. I’ve heard also they can experience significant die back in winter so extra protection will be needed.
