After flowers fade, Kerria japonica fades into the shrub border again, its narrow, bright green leaves blending with the foliage of dogwood, dark green needles of yew and finely-cut foliage of Sorbaria sorbifolia Sem.
Sorbarias (Sorbaria) are often called false spireas.
Shrubs that will benefit from attention include Tamarix pentandra, Sorbaria arboera, Sorbaria sorbifolia, Spiraea japonica (and its many varieties), Hydrangea paniculata, Spiraera douglesii, Spiraea menziesii and Hypericum moserianum.
