Description

Spiraea alba, or White Meadowsweet, is a perennial shrub native to Michigan and the U.P. It is a natural resident of streams, marshes, and lakeshores. Cone-shaped clusters of tiny, white flowers bloom in the summer and produce both nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Host plant for Azure butterflies and a variety of moths and other insects.  It has an upright habit and grows up to 4 feet in height. Prefers medium to wet soil and full sun but tolerates part shade.

Meadowsweet is a good alternative to the non-native spiraea traditionally used in landscaping. A quart will include 1 individual plant.
