Spiraea prunifolia ‘Plena’ – “Bridalwreath Spirea”

4-9′ x 6-8′ Full sun Mar-Apr
An old-fashioned favorite in the South, this deciduous shrub bears small bouquets of double, 1/3-inch, white flowers all along its narrow, upright and arching stems in early-spring. Blooms open on wood grown during the previous season, so any shaping or pruning should be done just after flowering ceases.
