Favorite or New Plant

Ural Falsespirea
Ural Falsespirea (Sorbaria sorbifolia) is a delightful shrub that bears clouds of tiny white blossoms early to late summer. It grows about 6 feet tall and is hardy all the way to zone 3. Best of all, it will tolerate just about any conditions, from dry to moist soil and sun to partial shade. It has long, ferny leaves and performs best if renewal pruned quite heavily in early spring. It does produce suckers, so keep this in mind when siting the plant.
