Spiraeas are a group of flowering deciduous shrubs mostly of excellent garden value. There are types which flower in the spring, often with white flowers, and those which bloom over the summer, often with pink flowers and sometimes colourful foliage.

Spiraeas are happy in most soils except thin chalk and will grow in sun or light shade. Pruning depends on the variety.
