Green, ferny-looking leaves are finely divided into many narrow, toothed leaflets. Bloom from mid- to late summer, producing big, plumelike clusters of tiny white or creamy flowers at branch ends. Flowers mature into brown seed clusters; cut off faded blossoms unless you like the look of brown plumes. Use in large shrub borders or at the edge of woodlands or near water; the effect is almost tropical. These shrubs spread by suckering and will cover large areas if not curbed.Sorbaria sorbifolia
