Spirea 'Snowmound' Characteristics
Spirea 'Snowmound' are showy small shrubs with plentiful spring flowers. These low maintenance shrubs can generally tolerate deer, a variety of soils, and erosion. Spent flowers should be removed to improve the appearance and encourage new growth. Prune to shape as desired. Pruning should be done in late winter as new flowers grow on new wood. Pruning too late can result in loss of bloom.
Disease or insect visitors are rarely harmful to 'Snowmound'. Leafspot, fireblight, and powdery mildew may appear. Root rot is possible in poorly drained soils.
