|Lore||The S. japonica clan is a large group of ornamental shrubs that fall into the Rose Family. It's named for the European species from the Greek speria or wreath attesting to its whip like growths bearing white flowers worn at weddings. But the Japonicas came about far later and first identified by Carl Thunberg, among the earliest western plant hunters to botanize Japan. However, plants were not introduced to the West until about 1870. Native Spiraeas of Europe were well known as the source of white flowered wreaths worn by country brides in spring weddings.|
