Gorgeous arching sprays of white flowers in mid and late spring and toothed, bright green leaves. This popular, deciduous shrub is ideal for a sunny, well-drained shrub or mixed border. Relatively vigorous and easy to grow, to guarantee an abundant, foam-like display it must be pruned annually immediately after flowering.
- Garden care: Immediately after flowering prune flowered shoots to strong buds. On mature specimens cut back between a quarter to a fifth of the old shoots to the base.

It is difficult to be really specific about the eventual height and spread of a plant, but I have double checked with the RHS and they also give the height and spread of 2.5 x 2.5m.Answered on 15/5/2015 by Helen from crocus
