Deutzia




 

This shrub matures at about ten feet tall and ten feet in diameter. Its size will be determined by the particular plant and its environment. It does well in full sun and most soils with good drainage. 

The blooms are white with a hint of pink, especially in the buds. Its sweet fragrance is attractive to many insects, bees, and butterflies. Humming Birds also visit it. The bloom is on growth of the previous year.

It is good to remove about 1/3 of the old growth every summer just after it blooms. This will encourage new growth which will produce next year's bloom. Remove all dead canes, then remove the oldest canes first.
