Spiraea x vanhouttei
Vanhoutte spirea

The thin brown stems are glabrous, slightly glossy and are primarily rounded with slight angling. The first-year growth is zig-zag with slight exfoliation developing in the second or third season. Old stems become light gray and very bumpy without exfoliation.
