Considered old-fashioned by some, Pearlbushes are tough, dependable plants that explode with pearl-like buds and frilly petals at the first hint of spring, giving Forsythia a good run for its money. ‘Blizzard’ takes Pearlbush to a new level – a tetraploid hybrid that combines E. serratifolia, E. racemosa, and E. korolkowii in its pedigree. Unlike many Pearlbushes (e.g., ‘The Bride’), that can resemble a tangled cascading brush pile, ‘Blizzard’ has a distinct upright to rounded form with a mature height and width of 3-4 feet that makes a refined shrub or small tree. ‘Blizzard’ is extremely floriferous with flowers that can be twice as large as other Pearlbushes.
