Deutzia Scabra

I bought this shrub on impulse from the pound shop knowing nothing about it at all. I have planted it into the back garden. It already has a few pale green shoots and having inspected the root system am wishing that I had bought another couple. There were Philadelphus and Spiraea.

Deutzia Scabra is an upright, deciduous shrub with arching branches, peeling, pale brown bark, dark green leaves and dense panicles of fragrant, single, star-shaped, white or pink-flushed flowers from early to mid summer. The shrub can grow up to six feet .
