Spiraea ………..??


Pl. check with species available at Spiraea  


Looks like Spiraea bella.

Yes, Sir. It is Spiraea sp.
Was it cultivated or Wild ??

It is wild and looking for ID

Did you not check Spiraea bella as suggested by …
To me appears close. 

I checked but could not decide. Let … look into these once.

Flora of Kathmandu Valley mentioned as below:

I will go for Spiraea bella as per Flora of China description and as suggested by …, as it looks different from images at Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don 

I saw the Keys available in Flora of Nepal- Online Flora (as per this Spiraea micrantha and Spiraea bella are very close).
As per these keys and detailed description, it is Spiraea bella only.


Thank you …!

Which Spiraea ??


Pl. check with species available at Spiraea 


You have arranged the things beautifully.

…, have you checked in Flora of Nepal ?

Yes !

Is it not matching with any species in efi site at Spiraea ?

I tried all including ACFPN but could not decide.

I think close to images at Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don 

Or can it be Spiraea bella Sims as per Flora of China description ?

I saw the Keys available in Flora of Nepal- Online Flora (as per this Spiraea micrantha and Spiraea bella are very close).
As per these keys and detailed description, it is Spiraea bella only.

Pl. check species available at Spiraea

I think close to images at Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don 

Or can it be Spiraea bella Sims as per Flora of China description.

I will go for Spiraea bella as per Flora of China description, for the time being as it looks different from images at Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don 

I saw the Keys available in Flora of Nepal- Online Flora (as per this Spiraea micrantha and Spiraea bella are very close).

Spiraea vaccinifolia D.Don ??


I also feel close to Spiraea vaccinifolia in comparison to Spiraea bella 


I saw the Keys available in Flora of Nepal- Online Flora (as per this Spiraea micrantha and Spiraea bella are very close).
As per these keys and detailed descriptions, it is Spiraea micrantha.

However, description for Spiraea micrantha says: Flowers usually bisexual, 4-5 across. Stamens ca. 20, much longer than petals.
While for Spiraea bella, it says Flowers unisexual, 5-7 mm across, female slightly smaller. Stamens ca. 20, reduced and shorter than petals in female flowers, slightly longer than petals in male flowers.
Pl. check as I am having doubts about suggested id.
In view, it may be Spiraea bella only.
