Quick Overview:

‘Shirobana’ typically grows to 2-3′ tall and to 3-5′ wide. White to deep pink flowers in flattened corymbs appear in a showy bloom from late spring to mid-summer. New foliage emerges with pinkish-purple tinting in spring, matures to dark green by summer and finally turns purplish-bronze in fall. Will re-bloom with a light shearing after flowering.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Tolerates a wide range of soils. Prefers rich, moist loams. Remove faded flower clusters as practicable (light shearing is an option) to encourage additional bloom. Flowers on new wood, so prune in late winter to early spring if needed. Plants can be aggressive self-seeders, and have escaped gardens and naturalized in many areas of the eastern U. S. Plants will also spread in the garden by suckering.
