Colourful bush

Would you like a hedge full of butterflies? Then we recommend the Japanese meadowsweet 'Anthony Waterer' (Spiraea japonica). It attracts bees and butterflies! And we understand why! The pink flower groves are a festive picture. The flowers bloom in the summer. The plant is winter-hardy. We can enjoy the colourful spiraea again next year!
If necessary, cut branches off at the base in spring. Position the plant in a place with plenty of sunlight. Always keep the soil slightly moist. The spiraea prefers well-drained soil.

Planting

Spiraea thrives in fertile soil. Improve a poor garden soil with the addition of some well-rotted compost and granulated cow manure. A spot in full sun or part shade and you spiraea will be happy..
Make sure that the roots of the spiraea are soaked well prior to planting - stand in a bucket of lukewarm water for a while. Prepare a large hole and thoroughly loosen the soil with a fork. Plant your spiraea at the right depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with more soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting.
 

Using spiraea as hedging

The abundant flowering makes this Japanese spiraea a real winner for your garden. A low growing shrub in will also look great in beds and borders, or use it to make a low hedge. This undemanding spiraea flowers all summer long.

Care

The Japanese spiraea is a sturdy shrub, very undemanding, therefore easy to care for. In winter, mulch with a thick layer of compost and granulated cow manure. Wet soil in winter is not appreciated.

Pruning spiraea

Spiraea is a shrub that flowers on this year's wood. You can cut your spiraea hard back to approx. 10 cm above soil level every year in April. If necessary, you can also rejuvenate it slightly by cutting out about one third of all branches.

Extra

Japanese spiraea (Spiraea japonica) attracts loads of butterflies and moths to your garden and should certainly be a must in your butterfly garden. The flowers smell so delightful too.
Japanese Spiraea is classified under Rosaceae.
