I read that our white spring bush is commonly known as ‘elf’s home spiraea’ in English. What a beautiful name!

It always used to make me think of lacy wedding dresses and veils, but I prefer the imaginary fairytale comparison now.

Most people seem to cut theirs right down at a regular basis, then having to wait for years to get the cascading blooms back. We are lazy gardeners, and have just let ours grow freely. Our fairies seem to like it, as they reward us with this beauty every spring.
