Western Spirea, also known as Spiraea douglasii, is a deciduous shrub native to western North America. It typically grows to a height of 2-6 feet and a width of 3-6 feet. The plant has an upright, spreading growth habit and produces clusters of pink or white flowers in the spring and summer.

The leaves of Western Spirea are oval-shaped and have serrated edges. They are green on the upper surface and lighter green on the lower surface. In the fall, the leaves turn yellow, orange, or red before falling off for the winter.

The flowers of Western Spirea are small and arranged in dense, flat-topped clusters at the tips of the branches. They are typically pink or white, and sometimes have a slight fragrance. The flowers are followed by small, dry fruits that are achenes.

Western Spirea prefers full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. It is commonly used in landscaping as a hedge, border plant, or accent plant. It is also attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
