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").

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.
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.
