The Maybush (Spiraea cantoniensis 'Lanceata') is a deciduous or semi-deciduous shrub growing in arches towards the ground. Its white, double flowers are quite spectacular giving a striking display to any common hedge.
The name is quite confusing, because the shrub flowers in September and October in the southern hemisphere. Luckily, there is an explanation for that…the shrub flowers in May in the northern hemisphere :-)…
