Blue Mist Spirea

When should I see new growth on my Blue Spirea bushes for zone 5? I cut them back to a foot in March. Thanks

Blue Mist Shrub Caryopteris

is not really a spirea.. its caryopteris..

and mine is just barely budding out ... in full sun ...

but i NEVER cut it back until after it flushes.. to make sure i only cut out dead stuff ...

the one that dies to the ground.. is up about 6 inches ...

And here I thought there was a new blue colored spirea I hadn't heard of!

Yes this one buds out very late.
