Description

Sorbaria genus (False spiraea). This genus consists of summer-flowering, deciduous shrubs. They have bright green pinnate leaves with serrated leaflets. The flowers are small white and star-shaped and are borne in large terminal panicles, and afterwards berries are produced.

Characteristics

Deciduous, Shrubs

Origin

S. America.

Interest and use

Grown for their foliage and large panicles of small, white flowers.

Cultivation

Grow well in full sun, with a rich, moist soil and a cool climate. Remove suckers at base to prevent Sorbaria spreading too widely. In the winter cut out some older stems on the mature plants and prune back the remaining shoots to their growing points.

Propagation

You can propagate from seeds or softwood cuttings in late winter or summer, by division in autumn or by root cuttings in late winter.
