Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - reeves' spirea is very fast growing and thrives on neglect. Without pruning, and allowed to assume its natural growth habit, reeves' spirea forms a beautiful mound of gracefully arching stems covered, in midspring, with masses of snow white flowers. If it is necessary to prune (and that's a pity! ), do so right after flowering, before the next year's flower buds develop. Reeves' spirea is an excellent choice for a mixed shrub border. It is at its best as a specimen shrub alone, in a small group, or alongside flamboyant asian azaleas, blooming at the same time. The dried flower clusters persist well in floral arrangements. Reeve's spirea is one of the most beautiful and popular among a large group of long-cultivated ornamentals. It has a relatively long flowering period, and in the deep south is almost evergreen.
