Comments: This spirea, native to Japan, produces an abundance of white flowers in spring. The foliage is normally blue-green during the growing season and is quite fine textured. Provide full sunlight and a well drained soil. On all spireas periodically remove old canes near the ground to encourage new, thrifty growth.
