I planted a 5 gal pearl bush in 2004, in a sunny location it grew quite well to about 6' in 2010. Slow growing but very nice blooms and fun to watch. In August of 2010 almost instantly the main stem dried up and all the leaves turned brown without dropping. 3 weeks later the remainder of the shrub turned brown, the bark split and shagged off. There are no signs of insects or environmental changes that I can see. I will leave it until spring, but don't have much hope for it.

I planted a tiny, deadlooking example of this plant last summer and thought it was dead this spring, after an unusually hard, cold, long winter in Nova Scotia. However, suddenly in mid-May it started to bloom, at the same time as the tulips. Even at its very small size (it is still less than a foot high) it is covered in glistening white flowers and looks amazingly graceful. The flowers have lasted for almost two months now and are just beginning to look tired. If it ever reaches the advertised height of 4 feet it will stop traffic.
