    Hello

    I hope you are well.

    Can someone please identify which Spirea this is?

    There are two Spirea in this corner, the other one is definitely Spirea Japonica 'Shirobana' and I thought this one was the same.

    This is the first year this shrub has flowered in about five years as it suffered badly with Powdery Mildew which I treated all last year, cut it right back last Autumn and since I have had the Drip Irrigation in place it seems to have flourished this year, thus far.

    Now I just need to know which Spirea it is :)

    Thanks in advance

    Kevin

      Reminds me of a compact pink reblooming Spirea that I have but mine has leaves that are yellowish at first. It is now turning amost all green and started the 2nd flush of blooms.

      Hello @Silver surfer

      Thanks for the reply, and the identification.

      This Spiraea has not grown much at all never mind flowered for more than five years until this year, after some intensive treatments for Powdery Mildew among other issues, and it was always believed that it was a Spiraea 'Shirobana', like its neighbour.

      Thanks

      Kevin

      I would agree with Silver Surfer ref the identification. I had a group of 5 of them when moving here. Not a favourite ,much preferring Gold Mound so dug them up and gave them away .
