It is little wonder that the elegant spireas are also called bridal wreath shrubs.
The flowers are petite and creamy white, in flat-topped powder puffs. They attract ladybugs and other beneficial insects.
The foliage is fine and turns a pleasing color in fall, where it persists throughout much of the winter.
This spirea has a slow to moderate growth rate and does not spread quickly. Its mature height is only 3.
Found from the eastern Cascades to the Prairies (USDA 5-8) on dry sites and steep slopes, Birchleaf Spirea has a deep taproot to anchor it against erosion and wind.
Choose a sunny site and enjoy.
