Product Description

Spirea Van Houtte-Spiraea x vanhouttei

Spirea Van Houtte is commonly known as bridal wreath spirea because it used to be added to wedding decorations. It is a beautiful plant that is vase-shaped and has branches that arch towards the ground, giving it a graceful look. Its white blooms are sure to catch all eyes in the spring, making this a plant that many people want in their yards. It is a shrub that does best in zones 3 to 8, in places that have medium moisture, with well-drained earth, though it is important to note that it needs full sun to grow its best. It can still grow in light shade, but it will take longer to mature, and it does just fine in a wide variety of different soils, though it prefers average moisture. The plant flowers in late April or early May, the small white flowers covering most of its surface, and the leaves tend to be a peculiar blue-green color that sets the flowers in beautiful contrast. It is a plant that grows quickly, and it can reach anywhere from 5 to 8 feet with a width of 7 to 10 feet, and it is a very hardy plant, so it does not require too much upkeep. You should, however, prune it right after it flowers so that it can regain its strength. The flowers attract butterflies, so it should definitely be an addition to anyone planning on creating a butterfly garden, and its densely packed branches make for a great hedge. Because it is so hardy, there are no serious insect issues to worry about, though it will need protection from the cold, and since it has many different potential uses, from hedges, borders, and foundation pieces to accent pieces, it is a plant that can be a great addition to any garden.
