Vanhouttei Spirea (Spiraea x vanhouttei) is also known as Bridal Wreath. It's truly a charming addition to the landscape, with graceful cascading limbs that arch up and out like a fountain.
You'll be amazed at the spring show when every branch is liberally frosted with white bloom clusters. The display lasts a long time and resembles a spring bride's veil.
This special plant is a cross between the Spiraea trilobata x s cantoniensis. The flower clusters are 1-2" diameter umbels. The lovely white flowers form along the branch and branchlet tips. They seem to float above the fine-textured leaves!
You simply have to see it to believe it. This shrub is definitely a superstar to wrap up the early spring. Underplant it with spring bulbs and spring-blooming perennials to create a precious welcome to the new growing season.
You'll love the sophisticated shape all year long. It looks great with its delicate summer leaves, and even in winter, the sparkling frost coats the arching branches in a stunning display.
This is a shrub isn't just a pretty face. It's easy-care, fast-growing and durable, too.
