One of my favorite shrubs!  
The spirea is covered from head to toe in
tiny white flowers!

  4. I have one of those too. It took a beating a few year ago when a huge tree fell on it, but it is making a comeback. Mine isn't in bloom yet.

  6. Sorry, spelling was bad in the last post so I deleted. I was saying.... nothing reminds us more of an old farm and simplier times that a spirea bush. :)

  8. Fabulous. I just bought 3 shrubs and now I need to go and get a spirea. I cannot believe how wonderfully full yours is. Awesome. Is it facing the south?

  22. I love Spirea, too. Such an olde- fashoned bush. We had an old one growing outside the hallway window in our 100 yr old house in Oklahoma (where i grew up). Neat fragrance, too. Bees loved it. My allergies did not ;(
