Product Information

Also known as the Fuzzy Deutzia, this native of Japan and China grows to about 8ft (2.5m) tall and smothers itself in clusters of pure-white, star-shaped flowers for 2 weeks in May-June. Prettily fragranced, they will attract all manner of pollinators such as butterflies and bees to your garden.

One of the most attractive of flowering shrubs, Deutzia scabra has graceful, arching branches and roughly textured, mid-green leaves that are hairy on both sides hence the common name 'Fuzzy'. Being deciduous, the shrub will shed its leaves in late autumn through winter, although mature branches have interesting peeling brown bark.

Fully hardy and easy to grow, plant in beds and borders or open woodland areas. Deutzia is tolerant of most soil conditions but prefers moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. It will grow to 2.5m high and 2m spread in 5-10 years and can be pruned after flowering to maintain shape and size.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to plant out.

Top Tips

  • Will produce the most flowers when planted in full sun.

Care Information

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Select an appropriate spot for your plant, making sure that you give it enough space to grow to its full size.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot. Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level as the pot. Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the rootball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel or bark.
