Spiraea nipponica 'Snowmound'

Snowmound is a beautiful shrub in the late spring and early summer. The top sides of it's arching branches are covered in small white flowers, making it look like a bush covered in snow.

This shrub has an average growth rate, eventually reaching a height of six to eight feet (about 2m). Hardy to zone 4, Snowmound is easy to look after, not needing any pruning, other than removing dead or diseased wood after flowering.

As with other Spiraeas it will tolerate most soils, including poor ones with the exception of thin chalk or very dry soils. It is happy growing in full sun or light shade.
