(Nippon Spirea, Snowmound Spirea)

A small deciduous shrub from Japan, the Nippon Spirea ‘Snowbound’ covers its branches and leaves so thickly in spring with clusters of small white flowers that it looks as if it is coated with snow. The dark green leaves appear after flowering starts, often with their tips showing through the flower clusters. While young, the shrub is upright and vase-shaped but soon the stems arch and from then on ‘Snowbank’ resembles a fountain.

Popular in Victorian times and still prized today for its snowy flowers, bridal wreath spirea is a dense arching head-high shrub that was introduced to England from its native Japan in about 1845. It is known in gardens by its double-flowered form, which bears masses of button-like white flowerheads all along its stems in mid-spring just as its small oval glossy green leaves emerge. The handsome foliage turns orange and red in fall. The wiry stems spread via short underground suckers.

The wispy branches of Thunberg's spirea teem with thousands of tiny white flowers in early spring. A round, mounding deciduous shrub from China, it often has out-spreading stems with arching tips. In early spring, before its narrow, green, willow-like leaves appear, its branches are engulfed by the small five-petaled flowers. Attracting butterflies, bees, and other colorful insects, the flowers last for a couple of weeks. In autumn the leaves typically turn shades of gold, rusty red and orange....

(Spirea)

An upright deciduous shrub resulting from the cross between Spiraea douglasii from western North America and S. salicifolia from Eurasia, this vigorously suckering shrub makes a good tall ground cover for areas of the garden that can accommodate its rapidly expanding rhizomes and its brown spent flower heads. The spires of rose-pink flowers appear throughout summer atop hairy, red-brown, shoulder-high stems. The lance-shaped medium-sized leaves have gray fuzzy undersides....
