Buy Deutzia × hybrida 'Strawberry Fields' deutzia strawberry fields: A treat in late spring and early summer

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any fertile, well-drained neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A very pretty flowering shrub, that will add late spring and early summer colour to the border with its pretty clusters of pink and white star-shaped flowers. These are sought-after by pollinating insects including bees and may have a light scent. Once established it is quite easy to look after and as it does not get too big, it can be grown in a large patio pot.

  • Garden care: To encourage a bushy habit tip-prune young plants, either by pinching off the tips of soft shoots or by reducing long leading or lateral shoots by a third. Immediately after flowering, cut back the stems that have flowered to one or two healthy buds.

Early Summer-flowering shrubs
