Spiraea tomentosa

Spiraea tomentosa


  • 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.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
