Spiraea henryi

Another thank you to James Gaither (J.G. in S.F.@Flickr) for contributing today's image of Spiraea henryi via the Botany Photo of the Day Flickr Pool. Appreciated, as always.

An endemic to China, Spiraea henryi is a 1-3m tall shrub associated with wooded areas at higher elevations (1300m - 3000m). For additional reading, see the information James has assembled (link to Spiraea henryi in previous paragraph).

A beautiful wedding bouquet for a wood nymph!

Simply lovely

Special! Great eye!

Beautiful. I knew this was a James Gaither photo before I scrolled down to the text. The striking detail and clarity he captures in his photos is amazing. Thank you once again for contributing to the Botany Photo of the Day Flickr Pool.

Beautiful & delicate! Yes, I agree to have this as my wedding bouquet!
I wonder if I can grow this specie in Oregon. Any idea?

A lovely bridal bouquet indeed,what a superb close up view of a very feminine bloom. Thanks for sharing your find.

My thanks to all for your generous comments. As for the comments regarding use as a wedding flower, the common horticultural form of Spiraea (I believe derived primarily from Spiraea prunifolia) is, of course, commonly known as Bridalwreath...
