Quick Overview:

This upright shrub would make a great specimen plant or would do well to be planted in a mixed shrub beds or boarder. It is at home in woodland gardens, and can be used effectively as screen or informal hedge planting.  It does not get too large so it is ideal for small spaces and can even be planted in a big pot.  It prefers a protected partial shade avoiding hottest afternoon summer sun and winter frost. New leaf growth in the spring is an interesting burgundy color which turns into glossy dark green as the leaves grow and age. Pink flushed buds open to fragrant, semi-double snowy white flowers from October through November and make wonderful cut flowers.  After flowering lighly prune plant if necessary to improve appearance.



This evergreen shrub is typically grown in moist, acidic, organically rich, well-drained soils with consistent moisture in part shade locations. Established plants do well with moderate but even moisture. Plants appreciate protection from direct hot summer afternoon sun. They thrive in sun-dappled part shade conditions under the protection of tree canopies. Protect from strong winds. Apply a root mulch (leaves or shredded bark). Prune after flowering. Prune to thin branching and to control size and shape. Plants may be effectively grown in tubs or other large containers. (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
