Spiraea Van Houtte – Spiraea x Vanhouttei

 

The Spiraea Van Houtte is a deciduous flowering shrub. It is a vase-shaped shrub with white flowers and branches that arch to the ground.
The hardy planting zones of the Spiraea Van Houtte shrub are Zone 4 through 9 and the shrub has a fast growth rate. The plant grows to a height of six to eight feet and the spread of the shrub is about 12 feet. The plant thrives in areas with full sunlight and in well- drained soil.
Spiraea Van Houtte is used in landscaping for borders, hedges, as foundation plants or as a specimen plant.


The Vanhoutte spirea is a plant to consider for making your landscape or garden beautiful.

 

With a hardy zone of 3-8, a height of 5 to 8 feet, and a spread of 7 - 10 feet, the Vanhoutte spirea (Spiraea vanhouttei) is a beautiful deciduous garden shrub, shaped like a vase, aka, bridal wreath, that blooms in a showy white and attracts plenty of butterflies. This plant grows with moderate shade, and in many different soils. The Vanhoutte spirea is named for L.B Van Houtte.

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 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 an unusual blue-green color that sets the flowers in beautiful contrast. It is a plant that overgrows, 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 be an addition to anyone planning on creating a butterfly garden, and its densely packed branches make for a high hedge. Because it is so hardy, there are no severe 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.
