Exochorda racemosa Blushing Pearl

Pearlbush Blushing Pearl

A lovely flowering shrub for a sunny border, Exochorda racemosa Blushing Pearl is a medium-sized, fast-growing, deciduous shrub, with a lovely, arching, rather upright habit. The incised leaves are blue-green. Abundant, white, pearl-like buds with a pink tinge open to simple, saucer-shaped, pure white flowers along the branches in May and June – the branches are almost covered with the flowers, making a striking display. When the flowers go over, a red shoot appears, followed by the lovely leaves. Give this shrub a potash-rich fertiliser and a mulch to conserve soil moisture in spring. Prune after flowering. Pearlbush Blushing Pearl is rather rare in this country, so snap it up!
