Why Plant Spirea?

Spirea are one of the backbones of our perennial gardens. These shrubs provide structure and a wonderful burst of color to the sunny garden.  Although they prefer sun, they also do well in a partly sunny location. In addition to colorful flowers, many of them have vividly colored foliage.  Most of the ones we grow are bred from Spirea japonica. With proper pruning, these Spirea will bloom twice in a season.  They are very drought tolerant and are not usually eaten by deer. Butterflies also find them attractive.   Spirea thunbergii 'Ogon' has a finer cut yellow foliage and blooms earlier in the spring. Try these easy to grow shrubs for a colorful addition to your garden.
