Description

Old-fashioned elegance. More flowers and a compact habit make Wedding Cake® spirea, an improved version of 'Snowmound', a standout in our trial gardens. An explosion of pure white flowers in late spring jump out against dark blue-green foliage. This is a waist-high shrub with a neat, fluffy, ball-shaped habit.
