Pretty Little Flowers–What Is it?

We have a flowering shrub in our yard that produces the prettiest little white flowers.  They are so dainty, and they remind me of vintage for some reason.  I’d love to put a name to this plant, does anyone know what it is?

  1. It’s a Bridal Veil Spirea! We bought our first house from a Master Gardner. She had all of the plants labeled with both their English and Latin name. Once of which was a mammoth spirea in the back year. I used to love to snip a flowering twig here and there to bring inside because those delicate little flowers were just so pretty.

    1. Thanks for identifying this pretty little flower for me! I have heard the name Spirea before but I guess I never knew what it looked like. How nice to have had all of your plants labeled for you by a Master Gardner – I’m usually fairly good identifying plants by their English name, but Latin, forget it 🙂 And by the way, they didn’t stay in bloom very long 😦

      1. Such a bummer about the blooms! Honestly, I had to ask my mother to come over and help me week for the very first time because that garden was so overgrown and I couldn’t tell what was a weed and what was intentional. I didn’t find the labels until after we hacked it all back. 😉
