Carefree Spirit

This mounding Shrub is a lot like Carefree Delight™ as it comes from the same breeding line. It shares the same ruggedness & glossy foliage. But it has even better disease resistance, more bushy compact habit & more bloom power. Colorful deep cherry-red blend blooms arrive in large showy clusters. A consensus winner that will perform well in any area of the country.
