Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Exotic in appearance but hardy by nature, Sobaria sorbifolia 'Sem' is an eye-catching, compact and vibrant shrub. A stunning addition to any border or even a large patio pot. The False Spiraea sports attractive ferny yellow-green foliage and feathered white flowers in midsummer. In autumn the foliage undergoes a transformation, turning a delightfully vibrant shade of red. A lovely choice for a prominent border or woodland edge. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

Flowering Months
Sorbaria plants have a vigorous habit and quickly spread if not restricted. Remove suckers as they appear to control the spread on the plant. Sorbaria also responds well to occasional restrictive pruning.
Plant Sorbaria in any moist, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. False Spiraea can also be grown at the edge of large ponds, in waterlogged soil.
