  • A deciduous shrub, Exochorda serratifolia 'Snow White' is grown for its large, pure white flowers, which burst from rounded buds in spring, smothering the bush.
  • The buds resemble pearls, giving rise to its more common name of the Pearl Bush, and are unaffected by spring frosts so the pearlescent blooms that follow make a truly remarkable spectacle in the spring.
  • Exochorda is relatively compact, only reaching around 4m x 3m in 10 years, so is ideal for small gardens, and can easily be pruned to further reduce its size.
  • Easy to grow and care for, once established, plants are drought tolerant, making them ideal for modern gardens and for gardeners concerned with climate change.
  • Supplied as an established plant, 40-50cm tall, including 3L pot.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Exochorda serratifolia 'Snow White'

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


Aftercare Advice for your Pearlbush

  • If you’re planting in spring or summer, water well and regularly for the first few months.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.


Pruning Advice for Exochorda Snow White bush

  • Exochorda trees do not require regular pruning, just a quick once over to remove any dead, diseased or damaged branches in the winter.
