With its vase shape and dull, bluish-green foliage, the Vanhoutte Spirea is a unique shrub that delivers a massive amount of blossoms during its flowering season.
Blossoming in the late spring, the Vanhoutte Spirea virtually explodes with 1-2 inch flowers, its dark foliage offering an excellent backdrop.
This deciduous shrub grows quickly, reaching up to 8 feet tall, and is often used as part of a screen planting.
Given plenty of direct sunlight, the Vanhoutte Spirea is durable and can thrive in most types of soil, as long as it has good drainage.
In addition to being used for screens, this plant can function as a foundation plant, border plant or as part of a group planting.
