Native to China and Japan, Deutzia scabra is a magnificent shrub that crumbles at the beginning of summer under a shower of very fragrant white star flowers. Paired with other spring flowering shrubs, it will do wonders in your garden. Its beautiful reddish-brown bark which exfoliates in long shreds in winter makes it a decorative shrub almost all year round.
The Fuzzy Deutzia, whose habit is erect, dense and bushy, reaches 2 to 3 m in height for a width of 2 m. From May to July, it is covered with a profusion of flowers of a magnificent pure white, arranged in panicles 15 cm long, releasing a sweet scent reminiscent of the smell of honey. Very honeyed, they are regularly visited by bees.
Resistant down to - 25 ° C, Deutzia scabra thrives in any type of soil, cool, well drained and rich, sheltered from cold winds. It appreciates a sunny situation, but also accepts partial shade. Remember to water it well in summer. Prune it immediately after flowering by cutting down the older branches every year at ground level.
