The Snowmound Spirea is a spectacular flowering shrub for late spring, covered in pure-white blooms in May or June. Each arching branch is garlanded from top to bottom with domes of small white blossoms, making a beautiful sight. This mounding plant will grow 3 or 4 feet tall and wide, and a little larger under ideal conditions. The small leaves are an attractive very dark green, with bluish tones on the underside. They turn yellow in fall. Grow this beautiful plant among other flowering shrubs for an all-season blooming border or grow it as an informal hedge. Use it on banks and among boulders, or in containers and planter boxes.

  • Arching branches smothered in snow-white blooms
  • Beautiful mounding form of grace and charm
  • Rich, dark-green foliage turns yellow in fall
  • Perfect for an informal flowering hedge
  • Easily grown all across the country

Full sun will give you the best results with the Snowmound Spirea, although it will enjoy a little afternoon shade when grown in the hottest zones. It grows in most well-drained soils, including clays, and does best in richer soils with a regular supply of moisture. Established plants have some drought resistance, and they are normally never bothered by pests, diseases or deer. For the best blooming, prune strongly in summer, soon after the blooms have faded.
