Exochorda- Pearl Bush

Deciduous shrubs, not 100 per cent hardy, but very beautiful.

Situation:

Particularly attractive when grown singly, especially in gardens in coastal regions. Plant in full sun and if possible give some protection during the first few winters.

Soil:

Rich, porous soil, preferably a little chalky.

Propagation:

From seed or by grafting on rootstock.

Also from cuttings taken in summer.

Exochorda X macrantha: Height 2 m; clusters of very fine, snow-white flowers in mid to late spring. ‘The Bride’ is a lower-growing form, approximately 1 m; it flowers a little later.

Exochorda racemosa: Height 3-4 m; a profusion of white flowers in late spring and early summer. The leaves are narrow-oval, greyish underneath; the branches arch gracefully. After flowering the shrub must be thinned out drastically.
