Spiraea cantoniensis ‘Lanceata’ Reeves
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6a to 9b
Reeves spirea is different from Japanese spirea with its wide, arching branches covered in double white flowers in the spring. The blue-green, lance-shaped leaves show no fall color, but are nearly evergreen in warmer climates. They emerge early in the spring. This one is a tough cookie that holds up to drought, deer, and insects.

General Plant Care:    Care for your shrubs includes monitoring for pests and diseases, periodically checking soil moisture, and providing fertilizer as needed. In general, plants that have sufficient water and the correct amount of fertilizer tend to not have as many pest and disease problems. Water new plants weekly during the growing season in the first year, and as needed after that.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Fertilize in spring when new growth appears, and once more before flowering with a general purpose or slow-release fertilizer.
General Pruning suggestions:    Spring-flowering shrubs and trees bloom on buds that formed on growth from the previous season, also known as “old wood.” Do not prune these plants in late winter or before they bloom in early spring! If you do, you will be cutting off the flower buds. If pruning is needed, do it in late spring, soon after the shrub has finished blooming. This will allow time for new growth and buds to form in late summer and fall, which will bear another season of blooms next spring.
