Use these dense-growing, low-maintenance deciduous trees and shrubs for tall, medium and low hedges or windbreaks. Their many flowers bloom with other late spring bulbs such as Dutch Iris, Tulips and Mock Oranges. Flowers are usually white, but can be pink or purplish on the outside. Plant the low-growing types around Roses. Likes sun or partial shade and well-drained, humus-rich soil. Choose a protected site in cold winter areas. Shield plants from winds. Prune old shoots right after bloom. Start from cuttings.
