The Spiraeas Database

Spirea is a most photogenic plant adding color to shady gardens, especially those that are predominantly green. Taking a picture thereof almost always results in a superlative photograph.

Stunning photo Thumbs up I think you may have just solved a problem we had - what to plant in a space we have in a shady part of our garden. Or semi-solved, since there are so many varieties to choose from! Hilarious!
