Description: There are about 80 species of the genus Spiraea throughout the world. The genus is subdivided into subgenera and sections in several ways depending upon the author - all classifications are based primarily on the structure of the inflorescence. In the system followed here (Batta 1977), the genus has 3 sections: Chamaedryon, Calospira, and Spiraria. In the United States and Canada, the taxa listed in table 1 are fairly common (Curtis 1959; Esser 1995; Fernald 1950; Habeck 1991; MacKinnon and others 1992; Ogle 1991b; Viereck and Little 1972). Virginia spirea occurs primarily in the southeastern United States and has been listed as a threatened species (Ogle 1991a).

Keywords: Spiraea L., spirea
