What is a beautiful white flowering shrub for my front yard?

Asked July 12, 2016, 10:13 AM EDT

I'd like to replace my 6 aging potentilla's in our front yard. What other flowering shrub would you recommend that preferably has white flowers on it? Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your question.

I think I will need more information about the site....how much sunlight?....how tall can the shrubs get?.....how much space do you have?

Some general recommendations would be...mock orange, different hydrangeas cultivars, white lilacs.

Hope this helps.

Right now, they stand around 40" wide, 50" tall, we trim down significantly in the fall. A lot of sunlight most of the day. Any other ideas based on that? Thanks!

No additional suggestions.

The recommendations that I previously indicated will work well on this full sun site.
