Deutzia gracilis
“Nikko”

Deutzia gracilis "Nikko"

Long, slender, arching branches overflow with graceful white flowers in late Spring thru Summer on this, more compact form of Deutzia gracilis. Growing to only 2-4' tall & wide, this lovely, low-maintenance shrub is perfect for adding a burst of airy, romantic blooms to any garden. Absolutely stunning when paired with evergreen shrubs, which screen the deciduous branches in Winter & create a solid backdrop for the bloomiferous Spring display. Prefers moist, rich soil - but will also tolerate clay & do beautifully with only occasional Summer water (once established). Gives its absolute best floral explosion in full sun, but will gladly grow in part shade. Trim branches back after flowering to encourage bushiness.
