Think of’ Chardonnay Pearls’ Deutzia as a well-kept secret that surprises you in the garden. The fragrant white pearl shaped flowers open up and allow their honey scent to waft through the air. Once open the flowers accent the shrub with star-like blooms. This petite shrub welcomes spring with not only fragrant flowers but beautiful chartreuse foliage as well.
‘Chardonnay Pearls’ has season long interest with the beautiful flowers and bright foliage. It is deer resistant for those that live in deer country, attracts those early pollinators because most pollinators can “smell” a flower before it sees the flower and that honey scent will be a sure attractant.
Chardonnay Pearls® Deutzia Care
When planting ‘Chardonnay Pearls’, it prefers part to full sun, a moist but well-draining soil. If planting in a container it should have a drainage hole. Add a slow release fertilizer such as Espoma Plant Tone when planting and again the autumn. No need to fertilize otherwise. It is advisable to lightly mulch after planting but don’t put the mulch up to the stem. An inch or two of mulch is perfect and will help keep the soil moist.
This is an outstanding plant to use in a container or in the landscape. It is the perfect plant for use in a perennial garden where it won’t overtake the other plants and will draw beneficial insects as well. While the flowers fade in the summer, the foliage color makes up for that loss.
Chardonnay Pearls® Deutzia Spacing
Space plants 3 to 4 feet apart, center on center. This allows enough air circulation and room for the roots to grow. It also ensures the plants get enough sunlight and aren’t covered up with other plants too close nearby.
