Slow growing, eventually forming an uneven mound of arching, drooping branches. Makes a beautiful display in late spring, being covered with pure white flowers. The display, however, is only short-lived lasting only about a week.

Dislikes very alkaline, chalky soils. Prune immediately after flowering if needed.
