    Spirea Spiraca Japonica

     
    Pink Spirea has beautiful, dense panicles of blooms to add to your landscaping enhancements. These deciduous shrubs come from a huge family genus of almost 100 species and are a favorite of many as ornamental plants, because of their striking beauty.

    The Pink Spirea can be defined in three ways- hardy, easy to cultivate and fast growing. Some people enjoy grouping these bushes together for an effective privacy screen or an attractive "live" fence. The shrub also looks gorgeous as a focal point to any landscape and excellent for slope and erosion control. As far as height goes, the versatile Pink Spirea can reach two to six feet tall, depending on the variety.

    Zones 5 to 9 are ideal for growing these pink beauties with the delicate green foliage. The Pink Spirea grow best in full sun for the largest and most colorful blooms. When planting, be sure to give them breathing room, because their spreads can vary, depending on the variety chosen. Larger bushes can grow up to six feet wide. These shrubs also like a moist well-drained soil but not over-watered, because the plant obtains what it needs from its natural environment.

    Fertilizing the Pink Spirea is fine, as long as it is done sparingly. Sprinkling all-purpose fertilizer granules around the base once a year is sufficient and will maintain the shrub's health and lushness.

    In general, the Pink Spirea is easy to maintain with its adorable cascading flowers making their appearance in spring and summer. Most varieties can be pruned after flowering. This will ensure keeping their proper shape, as well as reducing the plant's height. The Pink Spirea is so tough, the bush can be aggressively pruned and will still keep growing and blooming again. Broken, dead or diseased branches can be removed at anytime.

    The Pink Spirea is a versatile accent for a property's landscape.

The expansive width and fullness of the spirea make it an excellent border plant.
