Spirea - Japanese White
White Heads Throughout Summer
The Spirea 'Japanese White', Spiraea albiflora, has bright green foliage, topped by heavy clusters of white blooms at the end of the branches.
Japanese White is covered with flat clusters of white flowers in June, and again off and on all summer, especially if the old flowers are deadheaded.
This beautiful spreading garden shrub is low growing and exhibits a 2' rounded form. Japanese Whites are effective in mixed shrub plantings, low borders or when clumped together.
Spireas grow in sun or partial shade and are great in shrub groupings, near buildings, and low hedges.
Japanese White blooms on new wood, and is best pruned in early spring or late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. The fall foliage color is reddish-purple.
Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
