This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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 to a fifth of the old shoots to the base.
