Plant Description and Details

Rosy spires are standout on Douglas' Spirea's soft green leaves. It is most at home where it's moist at home, favoring the edge of water or low-lying, boggy areas. It grows to about man-height, with many stems coming from ground level. Its reddishbark and persistent, browned seed heads, still column-shaped, add a pleasant texture to the landscape after the leaves have fallen.
