Spiraea japonica Anthony Waterer

Spiraea are part of the Rosaceae family – the same botanical family as the rose. They can be found throughout most of North America, Europe and Mexico. This hardy cultivar, Anthony Waterer the ‘Japanese Spiraea’ is a very pretty and compact deciduous upright shrub with elongated green foliage. The foliage is reddish when young, occasionally becoming marbled cream and pink late in the season, giving varying interest over a number of months. Pretty domed heads of deep rosy pink flowers are produced throughout the summer months that are set off beautifully by the attractive foliage.

Growing up to 120cm it requires little pruning which should be done in spring, as it forms buds on new wood produced in the same season. This will also to help maintain its shape but if it has become overgrown it can be cut back hard every few years, but this must only be done in late winter or early spring.
