Spiraea species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)


Looking like Spiraea canescence


Spiraea nipponica


Was it wild or cultivated?
If wild, it can not be S. nipponica.


It is a non native


In case it is a native then it is surely Spiraea canescens

VoF Week: 18092012 BS 10 Rosaceae Shrub for id from Valley:

Pls id this Rosaceae Shrub
Shot from main valley
Only these two pics are availble


I hope Spiraea bella

You were lucky to get some unseasonal flowers


No … I got it wrong, I hope it should be S. canescens, if leaves are smaller than 2 cm. S. bella has pink flowers and sharply cut leaves.


Very nice find … … the flowers seem like faded pink rather than white for this to qualify for S. canescens…as well as the leaf texture….I may be wrong…


I think it should be Spiraea canescens D. Don as stated by …

Spiraea canescens D.Don
Many thanks to … for the ID in my earlier post.
Dear friends, the flowers on this plant have lost their glory.
at Valley of Flowers on August 2, 2012


I think, It is not Spiraea canescens– from … in another thread.
To me also looks different from images at Spiraea canescens


On further scrutiny I feel it is closer to Spiraea canescens D. Don only as suggested by …

 AUG 12
Valley of Flowersabout 11000 – 12000 ft 
Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: small shrub, about 50 – 70 cm high, tiny flower: about 3 – 5 mm across


Any idea about leaf size?. If less than 2 cm may be Spiraea canescens.


…  it would be less than or just about 2 cm long leaf.


Then should be Spiraea canescens 

I think, It is not Spiraea canescens


On further scrutiny I feel it is closer to Spiraea canescens D. Don only as suggested by …
