This wonderful spreading sub-shrub is smothered in fragrant clean white double blossoms in late spring and puts on quite a show. Low growing dwarf shrub/woody perennial; bright green leaves on arching branches display deep burgundy fall color.
Deutzia is an outstanding low growing woody perennial/dwarf shrub introduced by the National Arboretum. Well suited for small spaces or used as a groundcover, it is an elite plant for any garden. Its gently arching branches are covered by flowers in late April and early May. Highly effective in containers or cascading over a low wall.
Buds are set on previous year’s growth, so any pruning should be done just after flowers fade. New growth is produced from the base. Periodic thinning of branches will maintain the arching form. Pest resistant. Very easy to grow in any fertile soil. Benefits from light afternoon shade in areas with high temperatures.
