Deutzias are easy to grow, hardy deciduous shrubs that make beautiful displays of massed pink or white flowers in early to mid-summer. Numerous small five-petalled cup or saucer shaped flowers are borne profusely in clusters or racemes along twiggy arching branches, contrasting with mid-green toothed-edged leaves.
There are many different deutzia species and cultivated varieties and plant size varies considerably – the most compact types reach just 60cm high. A number of deutzia varieties grow to 1.2-1.8m high and wide, with the largest attaining a height and spread of 3m, so choosing the right one for a particular site is important.
Deutzias make excellent shrubs for garden borders but do have a relatively short period of interest, so underplant with perennials and bulbs in spring to extend the season of interest. Some older deutzias develop attractive peeling bark and birds often pick this off and use in nest building. Deutzias are easy to grow and tolerate a wide range of growing conditions.
How to grow deutzia
Plant deutzia, preferably when plants are dormant, into well-prepared soil. Mulch and feed annually. No regular is pruning required, but do thin out overgrown plants by selective renovation pruning. Propagate by cuttings in summer or winter.

Without a doubt one of the best parts about gardening in the Southeast is winters that are temperate yet still bring seasonality to the garden. I’m grateful that we don’t often get bone-chilling cold that lasts for days and weeks on end. Many gardeners in colder climates spend their winters waiting for spring. As gardeners in the Southeast, we can plan for vibrant gardens with winter interest in mind. For our purposes, we will define “winter” as December through February. For this article I will take you on a journey through the plants that are looking good in my winter garden in eastern Tennessee during these few months. I’ve made a note of the date I took the photo of each plant to give you a feeling of how the season progresses throughout my garden in the Southeast.
