Plant Species of the genus Exochorda

Information about this genus
Name: Exochorda
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Members of this genus are easy to cultivate. They prefer a moderately fertile soil, a cool, moist climate with adequate summer rainfall and a sheltered position in full sun. They may become chlorotic on chalk soils. Pruning consists of the removal of about one-third of the length of the basal shoots in late winter, to make room for new growth; spent flower clusters should be removed immediately after flowering. Seeds germinate readily when sown in spring in a warm, humid atmosphere. Soft-tip or half-hardened cuttings taken in summer or autumn can be rooted under cover, or hardwood cuttings from winter pruning can be used.
Description: This genus of 4 or 5 species of deciduous shrubs in the family Rosaceae is native to northeast and central Asia. All are attractive, spring-flowering shrubs, many with arching branches which become festooned with pure white, waxy flowers borne in terminal or axillary racemes; leaves are simple and alternate.
