Spiraea x vanhouttei Shrub is one of the Most Beautiful Flowering Shrubs that a Gardener Can Plant
One of the best things about this plant is that it’s about as easy to grow as it is lovely. Also called the Vanhoutte spirea or bridal wreath spirea, this bush can produce five to eight feet high and seven to 10 feet wide, though some specimens can grow to twice that. It’s a deciduous plant with small, serrated, diamond-shaped, bluish green leaves that are overwhelmed in the spring by arching sprays of beautiful white flowers.
Spiraea x Vanhouttei Shrub Grows best in Hardiness Zones 3 to 8
Once it’s established its maintenance is easy. It has a medium growth rate, which means it grows between 13 to 24 inches per year.
Named after the Belgian gardener L.B. Van Houtte, spiraea Van Houttei grew best in well-drained soil that’s been amended with compost and kept a bit moist. The compost should be refreshed every spring. Spiraea Van Houttei can do well in clay, sand or loamy soil with a pH from 6.1 to 7.8, though like many plants the spirea does best in slightly acidic soils. Soils with an alkaline pH over 7.1 can interfere with its uptake of nutrients. The bridal wreath spirea can put up with some drought.
Spiraea x vanhouttei Shrub is a very hardy shrub
It prefers moist, well-drained soils, but can survive in short periods of drought conditions. It has beautiful greenish blue foliage most of the year. In the spring, it blooms with tiny white clusters of flowers that will attract a variety of butterflies.
