Garden Tuesday: Spirea

I bought about 20 junipers from a local garden center at least a decade ago (not a big box place, just a little local place).  The woman felt badly that I wasn't buying flowers, so she gave me 2 of the puniest little bushes I'd ever seen for free.  They were a good 8" tall and might have had 3 branches.  But they filled in, and she was right.  They produce flowers all summer long, right next to my front steps.

Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

For free they are gorgeous. Amazing what twigs can grow into! Have a great day. Diane

Very nice!! In my world, the Knight tore up all the juniper on the front side of the house and planted grass...

In my world, I detest juniper. Sorry Marjie but I could never adapt to the smell. However, well Spirea, I like. One of those ever faithful plants that just brings a smile to your face if for no other reason, it's stamina!

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

Those are so pretty. I'm kind of like Louise, I don't like Juniper in my garden, though I do love it in my gin and tonics!

It looks like Mexican heather!

Lovely. And best of all, they were a gift. Hope you're not sweltering out there. We will be, I'm sure, soon enough.
