Since we use a lot of Deutzia it is always fun when it blooms near the end of May. It can be used as low-mounded shrub or as a flowering ground cover (it only takes light shearing to keep it really low). There are several types and cultivars available but I think this is my favorite. It is a tough, problem solving plant. A real classic!
This is the new gold foliage version of Slender Deutzia called ‘Chardonnay Pearls®’. I really want to try some.
I am not sure what these buds are from I just liked the star shape at the end of them. This picture should have a larger Depth of Field.
