Small varieties are particularly suitable for hedges or keeping in pots. Large varieties of Deutzia cut a fine figure as an eye-catcher in the garden.

The different flower colors and shapes

The predominant color of the Deutzia flowers is white. There is now a whole range of varieties with pink and even red flowers. The flowers can be filled and unfilled. Some deutzia flowers give off a light, very pleasant scent, while others have no scent at all.

The flower shapes also vary. Some shrubs bloom in long panicles that curve downward. But there are also Deutzias whose flowers appear in clusters.

A second flowering period in autumn can often be induced by pruning.
