Spiraea is a varied and useful genus of hardy flowering shrubs. About 80 species come from the northern temperate regions.
For this hybrid I crossed Spiraea hayatana, a Taiwanese species with S. japonica Magic Carpet. Why did I name a Spiraea Sparkling Champagne? Because if you look closely at the fully open flowers, they look just like (well pretty much like) the surface of a glass of pink fizz.
