Deutzia Chardonnay Pearls® Description
Fabulous flowers and colorful foliage make Chardonnay Pearls deutzia (Deutzia gracilis) an outstanding flowering shrub for landscapes and flower gardens. In spring, its foliage emerges a bright, eye-catching chartreuse, and shortly after that come cascades of sweet bell-shaped flowers of crisp white. It's a picture-perfect pairing for other springtime favorites, like daffodils, tulips, and ferns. Its chartreuse foliage makes it more shade tolerant than other deutzia, so it's a welcome addition to shade gardens!
Special features: containers, shade tolerant, colorful foliage, deer resistant.

More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
Soil: Plant in any well-drained spot. Can take some dryness, but blooms last longest if it does not dry out in spring
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) is best; part shade (4-6 hrs/day) is okay, especially in warmer areas
Space: Min. 12" apart
Fertilizing: Little fertilizer is needed.
Winterizing: No special treatment is required; 2-3" of mulch is recommended
Maintenance: Blooms on old wood, which means that any pruning should be done after bloom. If plants become thin and scraggly, cut back to just a few inches high after bloom for a flush of lush new growth.
