For such a small shrub, 2-4 ft high, the native mountain Spirea creates a dazzling display when in bloom. Very dense, flat-topped clusters, to 3inches across, of bright rose-pink to purple flowers appear in summer. Each tiny flower raises pink stamens to give the clusters a fuzzy texture. Leaves are bright green ovals, with teeth on the upper halves, covering the many fine stems. Occurring over a wide area of the west, in mountain meadows, avalanche chutes and in open alpine forests, this species sometimes hybridizes with the Douglas Spirea to create an intermediate form. It need moist soil and sun or light shade, but is quite adaptable.
