I purchased this plant from the Morton Arboretum about 5 years ago. It has never bloomed and it is not bushy or compact. It gets afternoon sun. I think I will prune it drastically now(July) and give it one more year. If it doesn’t bloom, I’m digging it out.

Delightful addition to the mixed border.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!Snow Day® Surprise Exochorda hybrid 'Niagara' USPP 21,665, Can 4,768

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.Araceli Clark, Florida, United States, 2 years ago
