Product description

  • Rate of Growth:average
  • Flowering period: June and July

    Abundant, arching sprays of bowl shaped, white flowers in mid summer and rounded, dark green leaves. This spreading, deciduous shrub makes an excellent, informal, flowering hedge for a sunny, well-drained site. It is particularly attractive to a wide range of insects so makes a welcome addition to the wildlife garden. This is a particularly vigorous variety, so for best results it should be pruned hard each year in early spring.

  • Garden care: Immediately after flowering prune flowered shoots to strong buds. On mature specimens cut back a quarter and a fifth of the old shoots to the base.
