Description

Deutzia x hybrida ‘Magicien’

A hardy and absolutely stunning sub-shrub with graceful arching stems. These are covered by unique pink star flowers that are slightly fragrant in late Spring to early Summer.
This garden shrub is perfect for that light shade under trees where it can get very dry and arid. Where many others wouldn’t dare grow let alone put on a robust show like Deutzia x hybrida ‘Magicien’. Even the bark is interesting; a reddish-orange colour with white stripes and peels to show off more on older branches.

A very easy to grow shrub with a tidy growth habit. Adaptive to a large range of soils and conditions. Also will not require much maintenance if any. All while being a very water wise plant once established.
