Spirea pyramidata
Spirea pyramidata ©Ellen Mast

Description: This hybrid between Spiraea betulifolia and S. douglasii reaches 4-5 feet in height. It is not as compact as birch-leaf spirea or as aggressive as western spirea. The pale pink flowers form pyramid-like clusters in contrast to the spiky clusters of western spirea and the flat clusters of birch-leaf spirea. Sun/part sun, dry to moist sites.
