Plant Family / Deutzia
Hardy and low-maintenance, Deutzia are charming flowering shrubs of medium size, often with flaking bark, that are graced for a few weeks in late spring with flowers carried in clusters. Ranging from white through to shades of pink and carmine, most Deutzias have blooms that are very fragrant. They are perfect at providing the garden with structure and serve nicely in borders or informal hedges.
A lovely Deutzia hybrid, award-winning Deutzia x hybrida 'Magicien' is a dense, upright, bushy shrub with elegantly spreading, arching stems and particularly attractive sprays of star-shaped pink and white flowers, 1 in. wide (2.5cm) across.
