Plant Families / Spiraea - Spirea
A favorite of many gardeners, Spiraea (Spirea) are deciduous shrubs that provide many seasons of care-free enjoyment in the landscape. In spring, they burst out in color with their winter buds breaking into vibrant shades of yellow and red, creating pleasing foliage combinations with their abundant clusters of pink or white flowers. Maturing to crisp yellows and rich greens during the summer months, the foliage shines in the fall with a new palette of yellows, reds, purples interspersed with an occasional vibrant orange. These flowering shrubs are terrific additions to the landscape!
