Bridal Veil

Wholesale

Summary

Looks great grown in containers and hanging baskets. Wonderful combined with bright annual flowers in large patio pots. Makes a good houseplant year round.

Description

This lovely plant gets its common name from its cascading foliage that trails over containers like a veil. The dense, deep green foliage is sprinkled with tiny white flowers all season long. Grows very happily in containers and can be pruned freely to maintain the desired size and shape.

Additional Info

Bridal Wreath Spirea Shrubs have beautiful, delicate white flowers that cascade along the weeping branches. The white flowers are clustered together like flowers in a bride’s bouquet. Bridal Wreath Spirea grows almost like a weeping willow with long branches that arch downwards. The flowers bloom in mid-spring, and every inch of its branches are covered with clusters of the white blooms. When cut, those stems can easily be shaped into bridal headdresses – hence the name. The tiny white flowers form in clusters which stand out against the foliage. When fall arrives, the leaves transform from emerald green to shades of red, orange, and golden yellow.

Watering

New plantings should be watered daily for a couple of weeks. After that, depending on the weather and soil type, watering can be adjusted to every two or three days. Clay soils hold moisture longer than sandy soils, so expect to water more frequently in sandy settings.


Different plants have different water needs. Some plants prefer staying on the dry side, others like to be consistently moist. Refer to the plant label to check a plant’s specific requirements.


Ideally water should only be applied to the root zone - an area roughly 6-12” (15-30cm) from the base of the plant, not the entire plant. A soaker hose is a great investment for keeping plants healthy and reducing water lost through evaporation. Hand watering using a watering wand with a sprinkler head attached is also a good way to control watering. If the garden area is large, and a sprinkler is necessary, try to water in the morning so that plant foliage has time to dry through the day. Moist foliage encourages disease and mold that can weaken or damage plants.


To check for soil moisture use your finger or a small trowel to dig in and examine the soil. If the first 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, it is time to water.

Pruning

Prune plants freely to maintain the desired size and shape. Pinching plants back stimulates dense, bushy new growth and encourages more flowers. Remove old flowers to keep plant looking healthy and prevent seed production that drains the plant’s energy at the expense of forming new flowers. Some plants are grown only for their attractive foliage (such as coleus, dusty miller and flowering kale). Their flowers are not very showy and any buds should be pinched off to keep the foliage looking its best.
