Did You Know?
Deutzia flowering shrubs are named after a Dutch botanist, 'Johann van der Deutz'.
Deutzia shrubs can be either deciduous or evergreen. They can easily be grown and require very little maintenance. Pruning needs to be done on a timely basis to ensure steady growth of these shrubs. It is done after the flowering (blooming) season ends. This process helps these shrubs develop new stems, on which flowers grow during the next blooming season.

These shrubs are mainly grown for ornamental purposes, and add a great deal of beauty to one's garden. Most of these species are white and/or mild-pink in color. Due to their fragrance, birds and insects find these shrubs very attractive. Most of these species grow vertically, rather than horizontally, which makes them suitable for smaller gardens.
