Spiraea vanhouttei Plants - Bridal Wreath

This beautiful deciduous shrub has been grown in our gardens for over a century, and, as the largest spiraea, is ideal for the back of a border. In early summer it puts on a lavish display of crowded clusters of pure white flowers. The foliage turns a conspicuous shade of purple in autumn. Height 1.8m.

Be tempted! There is always a space where you could plant a shrub. Unlike herbaceous perennials, which die back to the ground each winter, they provide a permanent 3-dimensional structure, forming a backdrop to their more ephemeral neighbours. Some shrubs are easy to grow or provide particular interest. Some have an extended flowering season and others provide additional colour or structure at different times of the year.

PLANTING - Prior to planting the trees and shrubs, dig over the area to two spades depth and incorporate a generous amount of garden compost or well-rotted manure. A dressing of bonemeal can also be applied at a rate of 105-140grms per sq.m (3-4 oz per sq yd). Dig out the hole about 15cm (6") wider than the root-ball and deep enough so that its top is just below the soil surface. Gently tease out some of the roots from around the root-ball to encourage new root growth to spread out into the surrounding soil. Fill in the hole around the plant gently firming the soil as you go. Water the plant to settle the soil around the roots.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade. (Making a white garden is challenging, and the key is to provide enough contrast in various cream and off-white shades, as well as with varying leaf shapes and colours.)
