Exochorda korolkowii, known as the Pearlbush, is a deciduous flowering shrub. Native to Korea and parts of China, this shrub has stunning and abundant white flowers that appear in spring, creating a visually striking display.
Exochorda korolkowii typically grows to a height of 3-4 meters and spreads out in a rounded or slightly arching shape. It grows at a moderate pace, and you can prune it to maintain its shape and size. The shrub has leaves that are medium to dark green in colour. During the autumn, the leaves turn shades of yellow before dropping for the winter.
Clusters of pure white, five-petaled blossoms form along the length of the branches. These flowers resemble small pearls or pearls on a string, giving rise to the common name “Pearlbush.” The flowers are often fragrant and attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. After flowering, small, inconspicuous fruit capsules develop. These capsules contain seeds and turn brown as they mature. However, the primary ornamental feature of this shrub is its flowers rather than its fruit.
Plant it as a specimen shrub or in small groups to create a visually striking focal point. Due to its relatively moderate size, it can also be incorporated into mixed borders.
Pruning is generally done after flowering to maintain the shrub’s shape and encourage new growth for the following year. Old and dead wood can be removed to promote healthy growth.
