They’re quick-growing deciduous shrubs with attractive flowers that are incredibly easy to grow: which is exactly what makes Spiraea japonica (also known as bridal wreath) such a popular and excellent shrub for borders. Spiraea tends to flower profusely with their pollinator-friendly blooms, adding a delight of colour to any landscape.
Herman Geers in the Netherlands is best known for selecting the most innovative Spiraea varieties based on compactness, eye-catching foliage colour, strength, flower power and intense, long-lasting flower colours. As if that’s not enough, his varieties are highly resistant to powdery mildew as well.
Spiraea japonica ‘Fenna’ has been selected for all the above and more. This stunning Spiraea has healthy green foliage that will be covered with dark-pink button-shaped flowers from May all the way to August. Not only is ‘Fenna’ very floriferous: her flowers keep the intense colour throughout the seasons! Something the pollinators definitely seem to appreciate, as ‘Fenna’ attracts more pollinators than most Spiraea.
