Bridal Wreath Spirea

Walking down the hill toward the pond yesterday I noticed the Bridal Wreath Spirea bushes are blooming down close to the woods.  My husband planted these bushes we see in the below photo to replace a very large bush taken down by a fallen tree.  So, of course, I turned around and went back inside for my camera.

I love the beautiful white cascading flower branches from these very pretty bushes.  
These flowers look so pretty when used in a garden arrangement bouquet of colorful flowers. 

These bushes are only a couple of years old and therefore have not grown very large.  But if you were considering planting one of these Bridal Wreath Spirea bushes, it is important to keep in mind that these bushes can grow as big as six feet tall and six to eight feet wide.  These beautiful bushes require full sun and are considered a very low-maintenance shrub.  

As you can see in the below photos these pretty flowers bloom in large clusters

This plant is considered an old-fashioned flower ... History tells us that a Scottish plant explorer discovered this plant in China in 1855.  How nice it found it's way to the good ole'  USA.

It is nice to know this beautiful plant is successfully 
grown throughout the United States in hardiness zones 4 through 10.

I continued on my walk with camera in hand and will share some of those photos in the next post.

Wishing you a happy and blessed upcoming Spring weekend wherever you may be.
