Description

A moisture loving shrub that is best planted in a partially shaded location. White spikelet flower heads bloom mid-summer and into the early fall. Seed pods create unique winter interest. Great for boggy areas or soil that is consistently moist. Serves as a larval host for the Spring Azur butterfly.

We also sell Steeple Bush, which is another Spiraea species.
