Virginia Spiraea

Flannagan Reservoir is a sanctuary for one of Virginia's endangered plants, Virginia spiraea (Spiraea virginiana). With its tough horizontal root system, the 3- to 10-foot-high shrub clings to life on eroded stream banks where its competition has been washed away. Ruffed grouse eat the buds. Flat-topped, white-flower clusters appear in mid-summer.
