Culture: Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best flowering in full sun. Wide range of soil tolerance. Prefers moist, humusy soils. Stems are somewhat short-lived, and annual pruning of dead branches is usually necessary. Prune in spring immediately after flowering.
Noteworthy Characteristics: This deutzia hybrid is a dense, rounded, deciduous shrub with slender, broadly spreading to arching stems. Typically grows 4-6′ tall (less frequently to 8′) and as wide. Small, bell-shaped flowers (to 3/4″ ) are pink with white edging and appear in late spring in numerous racemes which cover the shrub for about two weeks. Lanceolate, opposite, bright green leaves. Respectable but not spectacular burgundy fall color. This cultivar is synonymous with and sometime sold as D. x hybrida ‘Magician’. Zones 5 to 8.
