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.
Spirea is also a low-maintenance planting that is perfect for the less-is-more gardener. Seasonal pruning is not required, though you can certainly prune for shape or to keep the shrub from growing into unwanted areas. Just be sure to cut back after the flowering period.
See the boxes below for some of the varieties of spirea carried by Meadows Farms. Please contact your local Meadows Farms retail location for availability information.
