Best grown in average, medium moisture, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun. Remove root suckers promptly to avoid unwanted spread. Prune in late winter to early spring (plants may be cut close to the ground to rejuvenate).
Ural false spirea is a coarse, suckering, deciduous shrub which typically grows 5-8' tall (less frequently to 10') and as wide. Features tiny white flowers in dense, terminal, pyramidal panicles (to 10" long) in early summer. Compound, odd-pinnate, deep green foliage resembles that of mountain ash (Sorbus) to which it is related.
No serious insect or disease problems. Can spread aggressively by root suckers, particularly in loose soils (less invasive in heavy clay soils).
Best for naturalizing in areas where it can be allowed to spread. Mass for erosion control on banks and slopes. Screens. Shrub borders.
