Pink Spiraea Shrub Bush   

As one of nearly 100 species of spiraea, the pink spiraea is a perennial that is named after the vivid blooms that take residence on the fast-growing shrub. The leaves on the shrub are dense, oval-shaped and come to a point. Additionally, the leaves are toothed around the edges and deep green in color. The flowers on the pink spiraea are what gives the shrub its name; they are a magnificent shade of pink, appear in clusters, are flatter at the top, and, under the right conditions each cluster can reach up to six inches across. One of the many wonderful things about this shrub is that you can enjoy the vibrant color of the blooms and foliage all spring and summer long. As the season's progress, the flowers on the pink spiraea turn into shades of burgundy. This shrub is medium in size and can get up to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide. The pink spiraea will see its full potential if it is planted under full sunlight and in soil that is moist, loamy, and well-drained.

Typically, these shrubs are planted near walkways, porches, or patios. If you’re considering planting this shrub, in order to see the best results, it should be completed in the spring or fall when temperatures are cooler. The Pink Spiraea requires little maintenance, it simply needs to receive an average amount of water, about one inch per week; be fertilized each spring; and pruned one time per year, usually in the spring before it has bloomed or in the fall after it has bloomed.

It should be noted that the pink spiraea attracts insects that are beneficial including bees and butterflies that aid in pollination. The shrub also attracts hummingbirds. Additionally, for some, it is important to know that the shrub is deer resistant.
