Deciduous, Shrubs, Trees
From China. Loose, spikelike clusters of 1 1/2 to 2-in. white flowers open from a profusion of buds resembling pearls. Flowers bloom in spring, at about the same time the roundish, 1 1/2- to 2-in.-long leaves expand. Foliage and arching growth suggest the related spirea, but pearl bush has larger individual blossoms.
Prefers well-drained, acid soil; will take considerable neglect. To be pruned after bloom to control form, size. To make larger kinds fit small gardens, remove the lower branches to create upright, airy, multistemmed small trees.
