As the name suggests, a compact form of Deutzia suitable for garden detail use; smothered in showy white flowers in spring, dense mounded habit of growth; relatively unassuming the rest of the year

Ornamental Features

Compact Lemoine Deutzia has corymbs of white trumpet-shaped flowers along the branches in late spring. It has green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Compact Lemoine Deutzia is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Compact Lemoine Deutzia is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Compact Lemoine Deutzia will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
