Spiraea is a noteworthy vase-shaped, deciduous shrub with substantial branching that arches gracefully towards the ground. It is particularly noted for its showy spring bloom. Grows to heights of up to 10' tall and 20' wide, so choose a planting area that has plenty of space to accommodate the plant's mature size. It's a vigorous grower and a real bang for the buck! NOTE: What we ship is two year old ROOT STOCK, ranging 12-18" in height and is not a fully grown foliated potted plant.
