Stunning pure white flowers, much larger than others of the species - up to 12 inches across! Blooms appear in late spring to summer, often continuing into fall. Strong, straight stems hold the huge flower heads up well, despite heavy rain. This full, lush shrub needs plenty of room to show off its spectacular beauty. Deciduous.
