This plant hails from northern China and boasts creamy-white flowers in clusters up to 6 inches in size.

Flowers are fragrant, long-lasting, and cream-colored, making them an excellent addition to any outdoor space. This plant is tolerant of deer, rabbits, and slopes, and can grow up to 15 feet in height and width. It's important to note that it can be affected by pests and diseases. To grow this plant, it needs full sun to some shade and soil that ranges from some sand to some clay, with a pH of 5 to 7.5. It has a bloom time range of early summer to mid-summer and is hardy in USDA zones 4 to 7.
