    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prune to shape after flowering. This plant flowers on the previous season's growth ('old wood'). Adaptable to most soils but prefers well drained acidic soil. Fertilize with a controlled release shrub fertilizer in spring.

    Snow Day Surprise's large white blooms cover this plant in a flood of spring flowers. This is a stronger grower than old fashioned Pearl-bush, with a neater, more compact habit. An excellent plant for the spring landscape!

    • Bought this plant for my front garden and it never flourished. It receives morning sun till about 3pm then it in shade. I watered on a regular schedule but it never looked great. Very disappointed because I bought it online and its pretty pricey. Next time ill stick to buying only from my local garden stores. I don't recommend this plant to others.
