Spiraea tomentosa

Common name: Hardhack

Native plant

I finally had the opportunity to see this plant in flower, showing spectacular pink blooms in July. Our seed was collected from plants growing in wet sites, sometimes in standing water. The plants we saw tended not to form the large colonies that Spiraea alba forms. Should be massed on mesic to wet-mesic sites.
