The Q&A Archives: Need Info About A Pearl Bush

Question: I recently acquired a pearl bush and know nothing about it. I cannot find it in any of my gardening books. Where can I find info about this plant? (other name, sun/shade, soil, etc.)

Answer: I think you are referring to Exochorda, whose common name is pearl bush. It is a deciduous shrub that takes full sun and regular watering. It prefers well-drained acidic soil. Prune after bloom, as flowers form on the previous year's growth. It blooms for a short while in spring, starting with white buds that look like pearls.
