Good accent plant with profuse white flowers on arching branches in spring. It is a dense vase shaped upright shrub with dark green foliage turning to orange red in the fall.
Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new spring growth. little pruning is necessary. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
