Surprise Pearl-Bush. Spring Meadow Nursery says of this plant: "A flood of spring flower, this new and improved Pear-Bush comes from Herman Geers, the breeder of Wine and Roses® Weigela. This cross between E. x macrantha 'The Bride' and E. racemosa resulted in larger flowers and a more compact, broadly upright growth habit. It is a much better production plant than 'The Bride.'" This is a tough genus and does well in full sun to part shade. I have seen plants flowering quite heavily in fairly dense shade. Pictures are complements of Proven Winners®.
