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.
