In the months of April-May, the Exochorda macrantha 'The Bride' blooms with an abundance of bright white, star-shaped flowers that appear on the drooping branches of the tree, creating a cascade of bright white flowers.



After flowering, star-shaped fruits appear on the tree, which are yellow-brown in color.



The Exochorda macrantha 'The Bride' prefers a sunny location in the garden and in a nutrient-rich, well-draining soil.



The Pearl Tree can also be kept in size through pruning. Since the branches of this tree can grow vigorously, you can apply formative pruning to keep the tree in the desired size. The Exochorda macrantha 'The Bride' tolerates pruning well.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
