Easy to grow and trouble free!
Compact and rounded, the 3-foot high and wide shrub sets its flowering stems from the top of the plant, so that they arch out and onto the ground, tightly set with 4-inch bloom clusters all down the stems. Subtly fragrant, the blooms transform the look of the shrub, burying the foliage in frothy white. Magnificent!
After the blooms pass, cut back the flowering stems to the top of the foliage. This is the only maintenance Slender Deutzia ever needs, unless you would like to cut the entire shrub back every few years to increase its bushiness and flowering potential. Very easy to grow in sun to partial shade (full sun is best for heaviest flowering), this Japanese native tolerates drought and poor soil once established. The small (2 1/2-inch) leaves are soft green, making an attractive presence in the border or container. Zones 4-8.
