From Korea comes my favorite of the blue mist spireas...the parent of the popular C. x clandonensis. This 2' tall x 2' wide bushy perennial emerges with 18" stems clothed with round leaves clasping the stems in a neat layered pattern. In late summer and fall, C. incana forms ball like clusters of lavender blue flowers along each stem...spectacular in the garden and truly SUPERB for flower arrangers. This is a guaranteed WHATZAT plant!
