Spiraea (smaller growers)

The green foliage spireas. Prune this group early spring as low as you like.

- Fritschiana - foliage emerges and stays green all summer, the flower clusters are pure white, and the foliage turns yellow and orange in fall. A wider, spreading and more informal plant compared to most others.
- Tor Birchleaf - foliage is rich green, has pure white flowers, and in the fall the color changes to orange and red-purple.
- Japanese White - another green leaved selection with pure white flowers that if deadheaded will rebloom. Little fall color is noticed.
- Little Princess - tiny green leaves give way to small, light pink flowers and reblooming if deadheaded. Fall color is orange and red.

Spiraea (larger growing)

Spring blooming green leaved forms that get pruned AFTER the blooms are done in mid spring. (If any of these become overgrown, they can all be cut to the ground right after bloom and allowed to grow and the new growth produced will flower the next spring).

- Bridal Wreath - (Spiraea x Vanhouttei) taller 6-8’ vase shaped plants with white flower clusters all along the stems in May. Only flowers once in spring and the foliage is blue-green all season long.
- Renaissance - a more refined slightly smaller grower (5-7’) than the bridal wreath with white flowers all along the stems only one set of blooms each spring.
- Grefsheim - a mid-sized 4-5’ fine textured grower with early pure white flowers all along the stems, small blue green leaves turn coppery colored in fall

Nature Hills basically sells two different types of Spirea, the smaller selections that re-bloom, and the larger growers that bloom early and are done for the year. Spirea are hardy and easy to grow. Some of the older cultivars have been around since the early 1900’s and are still being grown today. Continue reading
