Deutzia x hybrida 'Strawberry Fields'
A medium sized shrub, but is a large Deutzia that has wonderful arching stems reaching 2.5 meters tall. The flowers are large with a vivid pink blooming from June and in to July, the flowers are star shaped. The plant is tough and very hardy against frosts, liking a lightly acidic soil. If the pruning is done well with attention to detail then Deutzia like others pruned in this group give the most back of all the shrubs. The new growth that comes after pruning from the base of the plant gives a vibrant and very attractive form. The stems form long uninterrupted growth from top to bottom, making lovely arching stems that bloom incredibly a the start of Summer.
