Snowmound Spiraea ~ Spiraea nipponica

This Snowmound would be found in the cemetery down a wooded path from the school. It is generally propagated by root cuttings and is a common landscaping plant, fitting for a cemetery because it's not really ornamental, besides its white inflorescences. What I like about this shrub is its subtle green to yellowish-green autumn color and its branches forming a vased to arching growth pattern.
