Plant Species of the genus Deutzia

Information about this genus
Name: Deutzia
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Most deutzias are very frost hardy and the genus is a mainstay of temperate gardens. They are best sheltered from strong winds that can damage the thin leaves or strip the flowers. Prune and thin after flowering to maintain a good framework of strong branches. Propagate from seed or half-hardened summer cuttings.
Description: Widely cultivated for its many graceful and ornamental members, this genus is composed of 60 species of deciduous and evergreen shrubs found mainly in temperate Asia with a toehold in Central America. Most of the commonly grown deutzias are spring flowering and deciduous. They have pointed oval to lance-shaped leaves in opposite pairs, often with serrated edges, and heads of small, starry, 5-petalled, white, cream or pink flowers that are usually held clear of the foliage.
