Sorbaria Sorbifolia Shrub Seeds Chinese Sorbaria seed
False Spirea is a fast growing, spreading, deciduous shrub which typically grows 5-8' tall (less frequently to 10') and as wide. Features tropical-looking, elegantly chiseled pinnate foliage with serrated and pleated deciduous leaflets beneath a creamy white explosion of giant Astilbe-like plumes in early summer. The compound, odd-pinnate, deep green foliage resembles that of mountain ash (Sorbus) to which it is related.
