A hybrid raised about 1900 by Messrs Lemoine of Nancy from E. korolkowii fertilised with pollen of E. racemosa. It is a shrub of great beauty, producing a raceme of flowers from every bud of the previous year’s growth. The raceme terminates a short leafy twig, and is 3 or 4 in. long, carrying six to ten snowy-white flowers, each 11⁄4 in. across. In the grouping of the stamens it is intermediate between the two parents, the groups consisting of threes, fours, or fives. It blossoms in April and May.
† cv. ‘The Bride’. – An excellent form of this hybrid, of Dutch origin, free-flowering and of dense, spreading habit, with arching branches. It received an Award of Merit when exhibited by the Crown Estate Commissioners, Windsor Great Park, in 1973, and a First Class Certificate in 1985.
