Abundant, arching sprays of bowl shaped, white flowers in mid summer and rounded, dark green leaves. This spreading, deciduous shrub makes an excellent, informal, flowering hedge for a sunny, well-drained site.

This is a particularly vigorous variety, so for best results it should be pruned hard each year in early spring.
