Pink Parasols™ Spirea  

 Spiraea fritchiana 'Wilma' 

A first for Korean Spirea : pink blooms! Long prized for its attractive fall color, this adaptable species is now available with fluffy pink flowers. This is a nice alternative to the standard white blooming fritschiana. Durable and adaptable to many sites, PINK PARASOLS is perfect for mass plantings. The extremely large soft pink flowers float like parasols above the attractive bluish-green leaves in the summer. Then fall brings on brilliant orange and red foliage. This plant is also a nice addition to the mixed border, or anywhere that a multi-season, low maintenance plant is needed. Deer-resistant

 

USDA Zone 4-8
Size:   2 to 3 feet by 3 to 4 feet wide
Full Sun

Extremely large, parasol-like, blooms literally cover this low mounded shrub in early summer to create a remarkable garden show. The soft pink blooms float above the attractive blue-green foliage that is beautiful in its own right.

Big, fluffy, umbrella-like blooms cover this mounded shrub in June. Bluish-green leaves turn a nice yellow- orange color in autumn.

Like other white selections of Korean Spirea, Pink Parasols™ also has outstanding orange red autumn leaf colors.
