Compact Spirea Makes a Great Low Hedge!
The Spirea 'Tor', Spiraea betuliflia 'Tor', is a compact spirea reaching a height and width of 2-3 ft. Its tiny white flower clusters are set against a backdrop of deep green leaves that are almost iridescent in the summer.
The bright foliage turns a deep, purplish-red in the fall. The flowers are attractive to butterflies. A light shearing will encourage repeat bloom. Tor blooms on new wood so pruning in early spring or late winter is recommended. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun, it also tolerates a wide range of soils.
Because of its small size and great attributes, Tor makes a wonderful foundation plant. It can also be used as a specimen or grouped for rock gardens.
This spirea looks fabulous when planted in a mass! Try using it as a low hedge for paths and walkways too. These are hard very popular and don't stay in stock very long. Order yours today!
