This is a decorative shrub that grows on the alleys and streets of my town in Moscow region, Russia. It blossoms in the middle of May, with the day temperature around 20 °C.

It's not hortensia, jasmine or lilac, which are common as street decorative plants around here. On ShootGardening, I found the Silver ghost rose, with the flowers looking similar, but larger than flowers in question.




It is Spiraea arguta, common name Bridal Wreath, a hardy, deciduous flowering shrub. Further info and image here https://www.rhsplants.co.uk/plants/_/spiraea-arguta/classid.8041/

  • Just a warning: it could be invasive. It makes so many berries (red), which are very nice in winter, but birds will spread out everywhere. May 15 '19 at 13:43
  • Red berries on Spiraea? not so far as I know...

  • Right. I confused it often with an other plant (which naturally I do not remember the name [the thorny one]). May 17 '19 at 8:35
