The plant thrives in moist loamy soil, and it should be planted in a location with full sunlight. The shrub is covered with flowers during summer. The Pink Spirea is usually planted in shrubberies, banks, near water gardens and walkways, porches or patios. Pruning in spring is needed to keep the bush tidy and encourage flowering in summer.
