Ushering bold grandeur into the backdrop of a large shrubby planting or a woodland’s edge, this dramatic Spiraea cousin hails from eastern Asia. Stiff, thick suckering stems spawn tropical-looking, elegantly chiseled pinnate foliage with serrated and pleated deciduous leaflets beneath a creamy white explosion of giant Astilbe-like plumes. Tiny individual flowers feature cupped calyxes, prominent stamens and reflexed petals for starry appeal.
Reputed to contain valuable antioxidants, the lush growing Sorbaria sorbifolia favors rich, moist soil in cooler climates, while regular pruning and cane removal will keep its spreading nature curbed.
Size: 5' 0"–10' 0" high x 5' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 2.
