Mountain Spray, Rock Spiraea
The most widely sold species are Western natives that are similar in appearance to closely related Spiraea. Nodding, branched clusters of many small, creamy white flowers at the branch tips in late spring or early summer make quite a show and attract birds. Flowers age to tannish gold and remain attractive for a long time. Prune by thinning after the flowers have turned brown and the clusters have withered. Use these shrubs in native plantings or rural low-maintenance gardens where they can fend for themselves.Holodiscus dumosus
