Downsized Shrubs

Enhance the look of ornamental garden beds with small flowering shrubs that are in scale with their perennial counterparts.

Slender deutzia (Deutzia gracilis) 'Chardonnay Pearls'. In spring the plant is covered with a plethora of beautiful white buds that pop open to emit a delicate fragrance. This three-foot shrub also has lovely lime-yellow foliage that provides color from spring to fall.

Slender deutzia does well in average garden soil. In hot climates it does best in partial shade; in cooler climates it can take morning sun but needs shade in the afternoon. Hardy in USDA Zones 4 to 8
