The Q&A Archives: Bridal Veil Spirea

Question: I have 6 bridal veil spirea as a border and they don't seem to be growing at all. I fertilized them in the spring and water them weekly but they have never flowered (second year) and don't seem to be growing. Any suggestions?

Answer: How disappointing for you! Spireas flower on new growth so to encourage new growth you may need to prune yours back a bit. You didn't mention whether or not you've fed your plants. Try feeding with a slow release 20-20-20 and prune them back a little to see if that will encourage new growth. I hope it does!
