Spirea is a shrub that has stood the test of time, and for good reason. These unique shrubs provide a wide range of flowering times, foliage colors, and growth habits, making them useful as an accent planting, hedge, or border planting. Flower times vary between varieties, but flowers are common from spring to early summer. The flowers are usually white, pink, or red, and the small blooms can appear as flat head blooms, round domes, or upright spikes depending on your chosen variety.
Spirea is also a low-maintenance planting that is perfect for the less-is-more gardener. Seasonal pruning is not required on most varieties, though you can certainly prune denser varieties for shape or to keep the shrub from growing into unwanted areas. Just be sure to cut back after the flowering period.
Spirea comes in many colors, shapes, and sizes. Meadows Farms carries a great selection of spireas throughout the growing season.
