Sorbaria sorbifolia 'Sem' (Large Plant)

Spiraea sorbifolia

Hardy Shrub

Sorbaria 'Sem' is a compact shrub that looks superb in the middle of borders or in a large pot on the patio. The False Spiraea is a well-behaved, deciduous suckering shrub. The fern-like foliage has a kaleidoscope of yellow, green and bronze colours, and is joined by feathered white flowers in midsummer.

Despite its exotic appearance, Sorbaria is hardy and will grow in the coldest, most inhospitable places of any garden. In contrast to most plants, the spring and summer colours are pink-bronze colouring to yellow-green, with foliage changing to vibrant red in autumn. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

Grow Sorbaria in any moist, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. False Spiraea can also be grown at the waterside, in waterlogged soil.
Sorbaria plants can spread quickly once established to create small thickets. Where necessary, remove suckers as they appear to restrict the spread on the plant. Sorbaria responds well to occasional restrictive pruning to keep them restrained and in good shape.
