Exochorda Snow Day® 'Surprise' Description

In early spring Snow Day® Surprise reveals why its common name is pearl bush when its branches fill with perfectly rounded, glowing ivory flower buds. This extremely floriferous selection reminds us of an unexpected snow day when buds burst open to create a dramatic white-out effect. This delightful show can easily be put into many gardens due to its neat and petite habit.

Special features: Sun-loving, compact shrub, clay soil tolerant, alkaline soil tolerant

Soil: Prefers well-drained locations. Can take a bit of dryness, but blooms last longest if it does not dry out in spring.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) is best; part shade (4-6 hrs/day) is okay, especially in warmer areas.
Water: Average
Space: 1.5 feet apart
Fertilizing: Fertilizer is not needed.
Winterizing: No special treatment is required, but 2-3" of mulch can be applied around base to prevent drying out.
Maintenance: Blooms on old wood, which means that any pruning should be done after bloom. If plants become thin and scraggly, cut back to just a few inches high after bloom for a flush of lush new growth.
