(1 user review)
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

If you want a summer-flowering shrub with great fall color, look no further. Fritsch spirea jumps out with a striking red, orange, and yellow glow even brighter than the fall color of oaks and maples. It has coarser foliage than others in the genus, and if sheared back in spring, it produces giant summer blooms.

Be the first to rate this plant
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This deciduous tree with dense foliage and a stately habit produces hanging clusters of fragrant yellow flowers in mid-summer. It grows in a broadly columnar shape and has dark green leaves that are glossy underneath. Basswood makes a good specimen or street tree, although it doesn't tolerate pollution. It can grow as tall as 80 feet with a width of 50 feet. It attracts bees; basswood honey is a sought-after gourmet food.
