Spirea has gracefully arching branches covered in small green leaves, dainty little buds and delicate white flowers in early spring. Spirea branches reach from 2 to 6 ft making a glorious feature in an arrangement. Basic care & handling : Cut the flower stem ends on a angle at least one inch to create fresh surface to absorb water and remove any faded stem base. Remove all foliage below the water line and place in a clean container filled with cool water and, with floral preservative provided. If you do not add floral preservative, change the water and re-cut the stems every day or so. Make sure the bucket or vase is clean. Stems are 35-40 inches tall and graded 5 stems / bunch.
