How to care for your Spiraea Pink Ice

  • Soil and Light Requirements: Prefers well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. It grows best in full sun to partial shade. Be sure to plant it in an area with good air circulation.
  • Watering: The plant is relatively drought-tolerant, but it needs regular watering during the first year after planting to establish its root system. Once established, the plant requires moderate watering, and it is best to water deeply and infrequently.
  • Fertilisation: Benefits from regular fertilisation during the growing season. Use a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in the early Spring or late Autumn. Follow the package instructions for the recommended dosage.
  • Pruning: Pruning is essential for maintaining the plant’s shape and promoting healthy growth. Prune the plant in the early Spring before new growth appears. Remove any dead or damaged branches and cut back one-third of the old growth to encourage new growth and blooms.
  • Winter Protection: It is hardy down to -20˚C. In colder climates, it is essential to protect the plant during the Winter months. Cover the plant with a layer of mulch to protect the roots from freezing temperatures.

Overall, Spiraea Pink Ice is an easy-to-care-for shrub that adds colour and interest to gardens and landscapes. With proper care, it will thrive and provide beautiful blooms year after year.
