A medium sized shrub giving a graceful outline of gently weeping branches that in May are entirely covered by small white flowers, making its two common names of Foam of May and Bridal wreath most appropriate
This is a deservedly popular garden plant of dwarf habit. It has beautiful foliage which opens red-orange, turning bright yellow and finally green. From mid summer it bears flower heads of a dusty rose-pink. Looks lovely in a mixed border.
