at Digging Dog

Bridalwreath

Spiraea

With attractive foliage and a graceful habit, these hardy, deciduous flowering shrubs belong to the Rose family, and are easily grown in any fertile, somewhat moisture-retentive garden soil.

Spiraea x vanhouttei full sun

This well-loved sturdy shrub has been delivering reliable spring flowers since 1868, when it was first introduced by the French shrub enthusiast and nurserymen Joseph Billard. Dense clustered umbels of tiny white blooms fashion a scintillating mantle that nearly conceals the copious gracefully arching branches. Spiraea x vanhouttei’s shapely medium-sized habit hosts small rhomboid-shaped green deciduous leaves with coarsely serrated margins and yellow or violet autumn hues. A cross between S. trilobata and S. cantoniensis, Bridalwreath makes an ideal low-maintenance addition to foundation plantings as well as sunny woodland margins and mixed borders, where it can be grouped or planted as a prominent specimen amid perennials and grasses.

Blooms April-May

Size: 5' 0"–8' 0" high x 5' 0"–8' 0" wide. Zone 3/4.

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.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
