Spirea House Garden Plants
Spirea house garden plants are beautiful flowering shrubs. They are relatively easy to grow and care for, and with proper routine care, these house garden plants can have a long and thriving life. Spirea is a genus of flowering shrubs with around 100 individual species, many of which are cultivated by gardeners around the world. Garden stores often have spirea in stock, and are capable of ordering specialty cultivars for their patrons. There are a number of uses for spirea in the garden, including as a border plant, hedge, or background planting, and many gardeners are very fond of spirea for its natural beauty and versatility. You may also hear plants in the spirea genus referred to as meadowsweet. These house garden plants have small oval leaves which may be toothed to lobed, and they produce profusions of white or pink flowers in the spring and summer. A healthy spirea will bloom so profusely that it looks like an explosion of flowers in the garden, producing delicate clusters of small flowers. In the fall, spirea shrubs drop their leaves, returning with fresh green foliage in the spring.
One of the big advantages to spirea house garden plants in the eyes of gardeners is that it is a very hardy genus, and spirea bushes will grow almost anywhere. Ideally, spirea likes full sun and well-drained soil, but it will tolerate part sun to shade, and a variety of soils, including dense clay soils and poor soils which offer little in the way of nutrition. Spirea also requires little in the way of pruning or watering, which can be useful in a garden with high-maintenance types.
