Spiraea thunbergii

Rosaceae
Deciduous, Shrubs

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.

Round clusters of small white flowers appear all along bare branches in early spring. Blue green, extremely narrow leaves to 1/2 in. long turn soft reddish brown in fall.
