Spiraea x vanhouttei
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.

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

Spiraea x vanhouttei (S-0794)
