Where do the seeds come from on a mature bush - are the seeds part of the white flower that can be planted for new bushes?

Welcome!

I have never seen a Bridal Wreath Spirea go to seed but if it does, the seeds will form AFTER the flowers dry up. Plants bloom and are pollinated by (an insect, a breeze...), after pollination, seed pods form in the center of the dried up flower.

I believe that most of the varieties are sterile and will not produce seeds. The plant can be propagated by cuttings.

I generally use the Forsythe Pot method to propagate cuttings and enjoy success.
Here is one link but you can look online to find others:
