Bridal Wreath Spirea Care

Grow this flowering shrub across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-9. It prefers to be planted in full sun but can tolerate some partial shade. Well drained soil is best but it is not picky about soil conditions.

Spirea bridal wreath growth rate is up to 5-9 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide at full maturity. Bridal wreath spirea can cover a large area! A yearly application in the early spring of slow release fertilizer at the top of the root ball will help its growth habit and small white flowers appear.

This flowering plant is low maintenance and easy to care for! White spirea is resistant to powdery mildew, root rot, and fire blight and can tolerate a variety of planting sites. Plus, it’s deer resistant! A layer of organic matter such as mulch or compost at the top of the planting hole will help retain moisture in hot locations.

Shipping Info

Once your Bridal Wreath Spirea Shrub order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order.  Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.

The Spirea Bridal Wreath is a truly low maintenance plant once established! They prefer full sun and well-drained soil. They are drought tolerant but should be watered regularly until established.

The Bridal Wreath will grow tall and leggy with no pruning, or can be selectively pruned after their blooming season. Plants that have become very overgrown can be severely pruned for rejuvenated growth and contained structure. Their mature width and sprawling root system should be accounted for when planting.


Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Bridal Wreath Spirea, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!

    I received these plants just as the white bloom were fading. So is my luck, but it was a very nice and healthy plant. They will grow big and strong in my back yard, hopefully giving me nice blooms next year!

    Bought in the winter (so the plant had no leafs) and saved my review to see if it bloomed come spring. Well it’s spring here in upstate and the Bridal Wreath is covered in white blooms. Very happy with our plants. Would buy again from Perfect Plants.

    Great gift plant! Sent one to my Aunt (A plant lady) who said it was dormant (due to winter) but that was ok because she could plant it and watch it bloom come spring. Shipped fast and got there same week I ordered.
