Quite as popular as the spirea is the Deutzia, throughout the middle section of the northern states.
Just at dawn, in a dew-drenched thicket of spirea, I found three nests not six feet apart.
spirea Anthony Waterer is a fine plant in late summer, having pink umbels of flowers and a habit somewhat like the valerian.
The hardy ornamental shrubs, honeysuckle, lilac, mock-orange and spirea Van Houttii can be grown here.
In fact, attempt to train a spirea and the chances are that you will spoil it.
