    SPIRAEA

    There are two distinct kinds of spireas: the bridal wreath type, with clusters of white flowers cascading down arching branches in spring or early summer; and the shrubby type, with pink, red, or white flowers clustered at branch ends in summer to fall. Blossoms on both types are usually single.

    Native from central Sierra Nevada to British Columbia. Grows to 1–3 ft. tall and wide. Ovate to elliptical, dark green leaves are woolly white beneath, turn yellow in fall. In summer, branch ends bear rosy pink flowers in dense, flat-topped clusters to 2 in. wide. ‘Summer Song’, to 2 1/2 ft. tall and wide, has bronzy new growth and bronzy fall, leaf color.
