I planted one last fall and this spring unexpectedly sprung out with new height. Beautiful
Snow Storm™ Spirea Spiraea x media
- Hardy Zones
- 4 - 8
- Mature Size
- 36 - 48 Inches
Masses of snow white flowers in early spring. Foliage turns orange red in autumn. Little care is needed; may be trimmed after blooming. Great for mass plantings. Deer resistant. Brilliant fall color.
Use Snow Storm as a specimen or in large masses to create a wonderful effect. Use it in the back of the perennial garden or in the shrub border. Good as an informal hedge or as a foundation planting.
Well drained soil is best. Best if pruned after flowering. To promote continued flowering deadhead (remove faded flower clusters.) Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees & shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.
Noted for its massive white dome-shaped blooms - up to 6 to 8 inches across - and superb autumn color. A snow storm of abundant, massive white flowers cover this plant in April and May. The pure white blooms will light up your garden and contrast wonderfully with the bluish-green foliage. Watch for a blaze of orange and red leaves in fall. The plant is sturdy and holds its blooms up in a neat fashion. Adaptable and easy to grow, this low-maintenance shrub is useful to both the professional landscaper and homeowner.
