Candy Corn® Spirea. This colorful, new selection is so outstanding that you won't believe your eyes. With its first flush of growth in the spring, It has candy apple red foliage, and as the season progresses, the older foliage transforms to pineapple yellow, creating a unique contrast with the orangey-red new growth. Dark purple blooms in late spring makes this one of the most eye-popping Spireas yet. It makes a gorgeous mound of only 18-24 inches tall with a slightly greater spread. The last pictures are the late winter new growth. This is a development of Dr. Tom Ranney of North Carolina State University. He is also the developer of Gordlinia grandiflora 'Sweet Tea.'
