Deutzia

Deutzia

A waterfall of white spring blossoms on cascading branches signals that deutzia is in bloom. Positioning this hardy shrub near a low wall or fence and allowing the branches of foamy flowers to spill over is the best way to showcase its late-spring beauty. The compact 'Nikko' is a dwarf slender deutzia cultivar that also boasts deep red fall color as well as spring blooms. Showy deutzia forms a large shrub up to 10 feet covered with large white flowers in spring. Hybrids between the two species don't grow quite as tall, but produce double pink flowers.
