Spirea plants have pronounced white flowers and grow about 4 feet tall, but some varieties can grow just under 10 feet.
These beautiful plants have a spread of up to 20 feet. Some shrubs display yellow, red, or pink blooms. The plant does well in hardiness zones 3-9. Spirea shrubs bloom in the spring and thrive in full sun but can also develop well in partial shade.
Spirea shrubs are popular for their arching branches, and the plant becomes more open with growth. The leaves of the plant are a rich green shade and similar to the plum, cherry, or peach trees. The leaves are around 2 inches long and are elliptical or ovate. When spirea is in full bloom, they look like a waterfall of small, colorful flowers. If you're not using the plant as a border or privacy partition, it's best to plant spirea far apart to prevent crowding.
Spirea is easy to grow and works well as a hedge.
The shrub needs well-drained, moist soil to thrive, and looks great in both natural areas and gardens. Even though spirea is a spring bloomer, it offers exceptional color during autumn as well. As the plants mature, they become hardy and dense, making them the perfect plant to display around the perimeter of your home. These gorgeous plants also attract butterflies to make your garden space feel more enchanted. Spirea remains intact in all summer and winter weather conditions. It's best to plant the spirea in spring or autumn. Be sure to mix compost into the soil if your soil is lacking nutrients. Place mulch at the bottom of the shrub. You can prune and cut the shrubs to maintain the desired height since the plant will continue to thrive when cut. You don't need to water spirea unless you live in an area where it doesn't rain often.
