A Nice Little Shrub

Just a quick post to show you Deutzia 'Chardonnay Pearls'. Year 3 in the garden - treated it just as nastily as I could - and here it is looking lovely. Unlike it's unruly Deutzia cousins that grow to be immense - this little fellow with its chartreuse leaves grows about 30 cm high and wide. The little flower buds look like pearls - the blossoms are really a nice bright white against the yellow/green leaves. I have it growing in part sun/shade where it really lights up an otherwise dull corner.

This is a wonderful blog and I too garden with many of the same plants that you highlight. Keep up the great work
