Purchase Recommended Add-ons
Deutzia Chardonnay Pearls produces numerous pearl-like buds that burst into attractive star-shaped flowers in spring. When the flowers have faded, this plant continues to shine with its bright yellow foliage. Growth is strong, but compact to create a wonderful small shrub that is equally at home in the shrub border as it is in a perennial one. Adds color and vibrancy to any garden.
History and introduction of Deutzia Chardonnay Pearls:
Like many ornamental plants, deutzia was not discovered in the wild, but rather as cultivated plant in Japan. Named in honor of Dutch plant hunting patron, Johann van der Deutz, deutzia was discovered, became popular and then with time fell out of favor. So it goes with many ornamental plants, their popularity ebbs and flows like the whims of fashion, just like mini skirts and big glasses become popular once again with the passing of time.
