Rely on the colorful dwarf shrub Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia, (Deutzia gracilis 'Duncan' PP#16098) in every planting bed to easily tie the entire design together. These bright landscape plants have been field-tested by the Proven Winners team for years. They are easy-growing, and highly ornamental.

Start the year off right! You'll be thrilled with the numerous pearl-like buds borne on small bracts held above the leaves. They cover the plant in springtime.

Watch as the sweet buds open to reveal elegant, white, star-shaped blooms. You'll take great delight in their fragrant aroma.

Trim some for cunningly small bud vase arrangements to decorate your interior tablescapes. Charm yourself with a mini-bouquet on your bedside table, or on your home office desk.

Once the flowers have faded, the real show begins. All through the growing season, you'll enjoy bright yellow foliage on this small accent shrub.

These sparkling, small foliage shrubs will intoxicate you with their zesty color, well-balanced shape and smooth, easy-care nature. Use this special plant with wild abandon, as it's great for landscape designs that work all season-long.

Lance-shaped, willow-like foliage is held densely all the way to the ground. This plant works when seen at a distance, and when studied up close.

Let the relaxing, low-maintenance Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia boost the visual appeal of your partially shaded spots in your landscape. Use them in containers, strategically placed to spotlight a "pop" of color where you need it.

As the nights turn cooler, the buttery foliage deepens to a vivid chartreuse. Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia continues to behave as a well-balanced contrast to the season's mellow burgundy, reds, oranges and yellows for you.

Chardonnay Pearls stays sweetly compact and delightfully rounded in shape. It's easy to tuck these diminutive shrubs wherever you could use definition and color in your space.

Order Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia this season and enjoy their fragrant scent and color in your landscape for many years to come. You'll savor their very long season of interest, from early spring through late fall.

How to Use Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia in the Landscape

Create impact with a long, continuous "ribbon" of color using a low hedge of Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia. These can be placed as a backdrop in your perennial border, to line a walkway or in front of mature shrubs or trees.

To create a solid low hedge, plant 30-inches apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.

They'll also be very effective in a mixed border. Partner with the arching form of burgundy Tiny Wine Ninebark, or play off the leaf shape with a large-leaved Hosta.

Show off your style with a series of exterior containers planted with Chardonnay Pearls. If your pot is large enough, this compact shrub can be used as a gorgeous "Filler" plant.

Make people smile and plant this hard-working Deutzia variety in a high-traffic area. Everyone will enjoy the scented spring blooms and the season-long foliage color burst.

#ProPlantTips for Care

These deciduous shrubs are easy to grow and maintain. Plant them in the right spot and perform a few simple, routine tasks and you can enjoy many years of success with this beautiful plant.

Plant it where it receives at least four hours of sunlight a day. It does best in well-drained soil; so if your soil retains water, plant in a raised bed or container.

Provide a medium amount of even water on a regular basis. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system to reduce surface evaporation.

Wait until after flowering to lightly prune to shape directly after flowering. Use a pair of sharp garden snips to trim back the spent blooms, then enjoy a polished presentation all summer long.

It's a great year to order Chardonnay Pearls Deutzia to enhance your garden, balcony, porch or patio. You'll be thrilled with the quality plant material from the expert growers at Nature Hills!
