Spirea: Generalities

It is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Rosaceae family that grows in Europe and in North America.
Its name derives from "spira" which alludes to the spiral shape of its tiny white-cream fragrant flowers.
The genus Filipendula includes ten species of rustic perennials; the Filipendula ulmaria is the species from which salicylic acid was extracted in 1838, a substance then synthesized as "aspirin".
Traditionally it was known as "Queen of the Meadows", as one of the favorites of the Queen of England Elizabeth I for her soft and delicate appearance.
Giving flowers of Spirea Ulmaria expresses vanity and frivolity at the same time.
