Snow Storm Spirea
A Storm of Snowy Flowers and Fall Color
Imagine a “snow storm” in spring, blanketing the blue/green foliage of your shrub for a superb display of floral brilliance! That’s what you’ll experience this spring when you plant a Snow Storm Spirea in your yard.
The show begins with what appears to be, at a distance, tiny dots of white scatted amid your blue/green foliage. As the buds begin to open, those dots become petite blossoms of pristine white, clustered together to form little bouquets amid the branches. It’s as delicate, and elegant a sight as you could hope to see. The dome-shaped clusters of flowers can reach up to 8 inches across, so it’s easy to see why people love this little shrub.
Autumn brings yet another show, with the vibrant leaves transitioning to shades of orange and red. Your Snow Storm Spriea is a deciduous shrub that will grow up to 4 feet in height with an equal spread. It has a compact nature with spreading branches. Snow Storm is adaptive to a variety of soils, as well as heat and disease tolerant. Pollinators love it, but deer pass it by. Overall, Snow Storm Spirea is a generally low maintenance shrub.
Spireas are popular shrubs for the home landscape, and Snow Storm Spirea is a fine example of a variety that always makes gardeners smile. Impressive flowers, foliage and fall color, coupled with a hardy low maintenance nature, make this an easy choice for almost any home.
