Spiraea Van Houtte is a real showstopper when it puts thousands of tiny white flowers up to 0.75-inches long in April and May. 

The flower-covered stems on this shrub appear in clusters that can be up to 2-inches wide. The branches on this shrub grow up to 8-feet tall swoop gracefully towards the ground creating a fountain-like appearance. Often the Spiraea Van Houtte grows up to 10-feet wide. 

  This shrub puts on so many tiny white flowers that it can be challenging to see the leaves blooming. The rest of the year, this plant’s leaves make it very attractive. The leaves on this shrub are dark blue-green and can be up to 1.5-inches long. These leaves have to three-to-five lobes. The lobes are often not very pronounced. While many leaves stay dark green throughout the growing season, others may have a purplish tint in the fall. 

Plant the Spiraea Van Houtte in full sun to be rewarded with the most blooms. 

It will, however, tolerate light shade. This plant prefers acidic soil and even moisture. This shrub is easy to grow because it is drought tolerant once it gets established. Once it gets started, the only care the Spiraea Van Houtte needs is an occasional pruning right after it stops blooming. 

  This shrub does well in many areas, including as a foundation shrub, borders, or specimen plant. It is also easy to start a new Spiraea Van Houtte once you have one by using softwood propagation techniques. 

  Consider this plant for your landscaping today and be rewarded with a beautiful, easy-to-grow shrub that requires very little care.
