(This is sometimes sold as Spiraea nipponica var. tosaensis.) For manys years Spiraea nipponica 'Snowmound' has been part of a loose association of shrubs that have held a south-facing hillside together in our garden. It has been an easy shrub to grow, attractive in the spring when its blue-green leaves emerge. A little later, it is covered with corymbs of small, five-petaled flowers that truly do suggest the plant's name when viewed from afar. In the autumn, the leaves put on a modest show of yellow color. When the leaves have fallen, you can see the shrub's arching habit and the dense pattern of branches that make up its bones.
