The Q&A Archives: Spiraea x vanhouttei 'Renaissance'

Question: What shrubs and perennials are good companion plants for Renaissance Spirea? It is located in a 40 ft mixed border. Thank You.

Answer: I would accentuate this Spiraea`s foliage with the darker Meyer`s Yew (Taxus x `Meyeri`) or Dwarf Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus `Nana`). For bright, warm colors, you might add Goblin Blanket Flower (Gaillardia x grandiflora `Goblin`) lavender, salvia, coreopsis, or even dahlias. Your mixed border is sure to be outstanding with such an attractive shrub as 'Renaissance'. Enjoy!
