Growing Calendar for Spiraea x vanhouttei Pink Ice - 9cm Potted Shrub
Delivery: Early March to Early September
Get a rewarding display of pink leaves in spring from shrubs whose leaves turn to green and pink in late spring and then mottled green and white for summer and into autumn.
During the time that the leaves are pink and green Spiraea Pink reveals white flowers for a three-tone display of white, green and pink. If you wish to up the visual impact surround with spring-planting bulbs like white daffodils, snowdrops and crocuses.
Tall and shrubby Spiraea Pink Ice is perfect planted to the back of flower beds. Because it is dense and shrubby it creates a hedge. Just position individual plants around 60cm (24in) apart in a row and create a visually-pleasing backdrop and an effective windbreak to filter strong winds.
Being fully hardy Spiraea Pink Ice will thrive in all microclimates of the UK. Spiraea Pink Ice is low maintenance and will flower every year given moist soil- incorporate rich compost at planting time.
If you want to keep it looking at its best just give it a light trim with sharp secateurs of around 2cm (3/4 in) all over in mid-summer to keep the shrub in good shape and give it time to produce flowering stems for the following year.
