Sorbaria

Sorbaria sorbifolia full sun  partial shade

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.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 5' 0"–10' 0" high x 5' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 2.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
