This is Breathtakingly Beautiful Bridal Wreath Spirea. (Spiraea prunifolia).
It is blooming in my garden now.....It often bloom before the leaves have opened up on my trees
I really cannot verify what the variety of my particular shrub because it was here when I brought the property 20 some years ago. I love it for so many reasons. When this shrub is in full bloom it resembles a fountain of amazing small clusters of white flowers. The blooms extend all the way down the arching canes.
The name comes from the fact that the canes thru the ages have been shaped into a wreath and worn by brides as a headdress for their wedding day. Very Special!!
I transplanted a great deal of this shrub to the back fence row about 10 years ago. Now it puts on such an impressive show. My variety grows to over 6 ft tall and is very full. It seems to prefer full sun but does fine in partial shade. My Bridal Wreath Spirea loves it out in the field along the fence row and it provides such a beautiful screen. Transplanting some of this shrub allowed my Kerria japonica with its yellow puff blooms, to fill in the gaps. Together they are so impressive…
