|This spirea is a dense shrub, with a fountain-like growth habit. Lance-shaped, bright green leaves are 1-2 inches long, on graceful arching shoots. From April to May, saucer-shaped white flowers in terminal corymbs are produced. Flowers are produced on the previous seasons wood, so keep this in mind when pruning. This shrub can grow in either acid or alkaline soils and though it prefers moisture, can withstand some drought.
