Please help me identify shrub/bush

Posted by melosgirl 7 (My Page) on

I have seen a flowering shrub/bush that I would love to purchase but I haven't been able to identify it. It has green leaves and long fronds growing out of it (like a fountain) and the fronds contain clusters of white flowers. I have seen some shrubs that are quite large (more than 5 feet tall). Does anyone have any idea what the name of this shrub/bush is?

While mine is not at that growth level just yet this spring, it could be Aruncus? (common name is Goatsbeard).

Why don't you ask the homeowner as to what it is and get back to us?

There are numerous ones that it could be, but Choisya comes to mind, immediately, as mine is new here and has just bloomed. I got it at triple oaks nursery in Franklinville, last Fall.

Bridalwreath Spiraea.

Thank you, Steve! This is exactly what I was looking for. Now I'll have to find a nursery that sells it! Thanks, again!
