Spiraea densiflora

Spiraea splendens occasionally called mountain spiraea, dense-flowered spiraea, rose meadowsweet, rosy spiraea, and subalpine spiraea is a mountain shrub found on the west coast of North America from California to British Columbia. It grows at elevations between 2,000 and 11,000 feet on inland mountain ranges. The plant is adapted to cold, moist, rocky slopes.

It is a woody shrub rarely reaching a meter in height. It has light green toothed leaves which turn yellow as cold weather approaches. The plant bears fragrant, fuzzy pom-pons of bright rosy pink flowers in the summer. The fruit is a tiny dry pod, no more than one eighth of an inch in length.

Names and Taxonomy

Taxonomy

Comments: As treated by Kartesz (1994 checklist), appears to include both the var. densiflora and var. splendens of the former S. densiflora here (synonymy given fits that concept); S. splendens var. rosea is the only other variety recognized by Kartesz, although Abrams cites that name as a synonym of his ssp. splendens. Floras appear to recognize at most two varieties, although names vary. LEM 20Oct94.
