Deutzia are modest, yet attractive bushy deciduous shrubs that fashion clusters of usually fragrant, star-shaped pink or white flowers that sit upon waxy green foliage during the summer months. Flaky bark is an additional and unique feature of Deutzia, adding even more charm to this beautiful shrub. Deutzia are a perfect accompaniment to your flower beds and borders, requiring very little care. You should expect your shrub to grow to an approximate height and spread of 1-1.5m (40-60”).
Deutzia are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of chalk, sand, loam or clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. You may wish to amend the planting area with plenty of organic matter as this will improve drainage and promote strong growth and development. Deutzia are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade where they will thrive to optimum effect, whilst kept sheltered from cold winds.
Prune Deutzia once the flowering period is over to keep your plants looking at their best year after year. This can be achieved by cutting out the stems that have flowered at the base as this will promote future growth. This should be undertaken on an annual basis to keep the shrub looking neat and tidy. There is no need to deadhead these plants.
