Growing & Maintenance Tips for Spiraea japonica 'Mertyann'

‘Mertyann’ is best grown in a loamy soil with full to partial sun. Summer flowering spirea will flower with a good flush in late spring, and sporadically during the summer. To promote a second flush of bloom, remove spent flowers by pinching or light shearing. Pruning for shape should be done in early spring to allow the flower buds to form.
