 The Plant Store

The plant store is now closed for the season.
I'll be winter sowing through the fall and early winter and potting up seedlings again come spring for the 2023 sale.

Spiraea tomentosa

Spiraea tomentosa

Steeplebush

  • Full sun to light shade
  • Wet to moist soil (not fond of consistently dry settings)
  • 3' to 4' height, spreads over time to form a thicket.
  • Ontario Native, thriving in high moisture meadows and along shorelines.

A moisture loving native shrub, this summer blooming spireas thrives on shorelines and in seasonally wet areas, including ditches and wet meadows. Very popular with pollinators, this species is new to the spaces I tend, having been grown from seeds I received from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library.
