This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: April to July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    This new deutzia is really quite compact, which makes it ideal for both borders and pots. The flowers however, which appear from mid-spring to midsummer, are larger than average, and they have a pretty purple-pink daub to the white petal tips. This deciduous shrub is tolerant of some light shade, but it will flower more prolifically, and be altogether happier in a warm and sunny spot.

  • Garden care: No regular pruning is necessary, as the flowers are borne on old wood, but you can encourage a bushy habit and help maintain an even shape by tip-pruning immediately after flowering, either by pinching off the tips of soft shoots or by reducing any long leading or lateral shoots by a third.
