Bridal Veil Spirea - Knowledgebase 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?

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!
