Pruning: The Little Princess Spirea generally requires minimal pruning. If necessary, prune in early spring before new growth emerges to shape the plant and remove any dead or damaged branches. Avoid excessive pruning, as it may reduce flowering and the natural form of the shrub.

Fertilization: Feed the Little Princess Spirea in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and evenly distribute the fertilizer around the base of the plant. This will provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and abundant blooms.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10, where winters can be cold, provide protection for the Little Princess Spirea during the winter months. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing temperatures. Additionally, consider using burlap or protective covers during periods of extreme cold to shield the plant from harsh weather conditions.



To plant the Little Princess Spirea (Spiraea japonica 'Little Princess'), choose a location in your garden that receives full sun to partial shade. Prepare the planting area by loosening the soil and incorporating organic matter to improve drainage and fertility. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the spirea in the hole, and backfill with soil, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Water thoroughly after planting and apply a layer of mulch around the base to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Whether planted in the ground or in a pot, the Little Princess Spirea will thrive with proper care and attention.

The Little Princess Spirea thrives in well-drained soil and requires regular watering to maintain consistent moisture levels. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, providing approximately 1 inch of water per week. Avoid overwatering, as it may lead to root rot. This spirea variety prefers full sun to partial shade, receiving at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day. While it can tolerate some shade, optimal sunlight exposure will promote vigorous growth and abundant flowering.
