Low Shrubs (to 4 feet high)
Evergreen and deciduous shrubs that generally stay below about 4 feet high without any pruning whatsoever or with only very minimal pruning. These plants are perfect where space is limited in the garden and landscape, as low hedges and accents, in front of or around larger shrubs and beneath trees and tree standards. Most of these small growing shrubs will make suitable long-lived low-maintenance medium-sized container specimens. Their smaller stature naturally lends many of these for use as Bonsai specimens.
Drooping clusters of purplish-pink tinged teardrop shaped buds open to starry white 1" wide flowers that hang from the ends of the softly arching branches of this compact shrub in spring. Pink Minor Deutzia develops into a compact arching mound of coppery colored young stems and dark green foliage. This is an easily grown, tough and adaptable, no-maintenance, small deciduous shrub well-suited to the cottage garden and sunny mixed borders. Provide a full to mostly sunny position in average moist, moderately fertile soils for optimum vigor and flowering. Item# 11947
