Spiraea arguta

22nd May 2009

When I moved into the garden here I planted quite a lot of Spiraea. Very useful little shrubs for filling awkward spaces. Over the years they have all gone - the last ones I can think of went about 2 years ago when I widened a path (S.japonica albiflora and 'Genpei '). All I seem to have left is this one, which was already well established when I arrived.
It sprawls a bit, but it is reliable in flower and otherwise fairly harmless.

A last picture for the present, which records the unfortunate passing of Spiraea arguta. It finally gave way to the convenience of more turning space for the car (with some help from a spade). Sad to push it out but practicality is a powerful force.
