Spiraea X bumalda 'Anthony Waterer' - Anthony Waterer Spirea

Anthony Waterer Spirea is one of the larger and more popular varieties of Bumald Spirea. It's size tops out at 3-4' in height and possibly larger in spread, when it reaches maturity. Similar to the 'Crispa' it has serrated foliage that is red when new, fading to green as the season progesses. However, the AW is not as deeply serrated, giving the foliage a cleaner look. Flowers bloom in late spring to early summer and are a rich pink color. Removing blooms before they turn brown can provide you with a second show of flowers later in the growing season.
