Spiraea nipponica 'Snowmound'


Tips for Homeowners:

After plant is well-established it could start looking a little rangy and need a rejuvenation pruning. When flowers begin to fade, remove dead or damaged branches and the 3 oldest branches, all the way down to the ground. A good rule of thumb to follow for this shrub is to never remove more than 1/3 of the stems at any one pruning.
