Exochorda is a little-known monotypic genus in the rose family. The single species E. racemosa is divided into 4 subspecies, ranging primarily from southeastern China, with a disjunct population in the “Stans” (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan).
Exochorda is a small shrub that flowers for us in late winter, usually starting around March 1. Pictured below in our garden is Tom Ranney’s relative new hybrid, Exochora ‘Blizzard’, which we absolutely love. This should mature around 6′ tall x 7′ wide. Zone 4a-8b.
Beautiful! Where can I find one of those in Louisiana?
It should be available at most good garden centers.
The name to ask for?
Beutiful Is ie hardy in zone 6. And s it available
Plant Delights typically doesn’t offer shrubs, so you’ll need to check your local garden centers and mail order if that doesn’t turn up any vendors. These should be fine from Zone 4a-8b.
