Gorgeous Spirea Shrub in Full Bllom

in nature •  last month  (edited)

Look at this gorgeous Spirea shrub in full bloom covered with white flower clusters.

Spirea is in the rose family and depending on the species the flowers can be white, yellow, pink or red. With close to 100 different species, I narrowed it down to Vanhouette Spirea. I took photos of the front, back and sides of this shrub.

Some of these shrubs bloom in the spring and others bloom in the summer. I found these in full bloom this past spring. I love any shrub that has arching branches like you see here. The Vanhouette spirea can grow anywhere from 5-8 feet high with a spread of 7-10 feet wide.

I have a Steemian friend who has been with me since my first week here and we have become good friends. She lives in Thailand and white flowers are her favorite. This Spirea shrub is dedicated to her...@tangmo. I know she will love these flowers and in her words, will make her "feel refreshed and happy with a big smile." I might even get triple WOW's for this one. Thanks so much for your friendship and support @tangmo! Sending you much love and Hugs!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh! I "feel refreshed and happy with a big smile" now....... ^___________^

I knew you would say that and I knew you would love these white flowers. : ) When I first saw this bush, I practically ran to it. The whole time I was taking the photos I kept saying to myself, "@tangmo is going to love these." I have never seen so many flowers on one bush like these. My pleasure, my dear sis! : )
Oh, I got worried when I read, "Not triple wow," but then my face lit up when read "Infinity WOW." YAY! I love that so now you have made me very happy with a wide smile. MILLION LOVE right back at you sis!!! : ) : ) : )

Oh! You are very kind to me...... I can imagine how you ran to this bush and thought about me! I would love to be with you at that moment. It would be really special moment.
