Meadowsweet

Spiraea alba var. latifolia 3-6' x same.

Thicket-forming, mound-shaped, woody native shrub bearing many upright, unbranched stems. Narrow, oblong, lance-shaped leaves with toothed edges turn from light green to golden yellow in autumn before dropping. Tiny, fragrant, white flowers grow in conical spikes at the tips of branches and bloom over a long period from early summer through September.

A great native alternative to the more showy Japanese Spireas for pollinator gardens and natural landscaping. Butterflies and other beneficial insects are attracted to the nectar and pollen and songbirds feed on the dried brown seed capsules that persist through the fall. Deer, however, tend to leave the Meadowsweet be. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)
