Description

Sharing is caring!

This 6-8′ tall Deciduous Heirloom Shrub is covered with fragrant white flowers in the Spring  The flowers produce large amounts of nectar and pollen attracting butterflies, honeybees and native bees. Fuzzy Deutzia produces more nectar and pollen than the other species of Deutzia. They provide nesting and shelter for birds. They are generally uncommon in Coastal Ga and SC however we found the mother plant for ours growing in unirrigated shell sand on a high bluff exposed to salt winds. Deer rarely browse on Deutzia.

While rescuing plants from an old garden in McIntosh Co., GA,  now crossed by utility lines, I noticed the crown of an old shrub that had been bushhugged and herbicided repeatedly over the years. Amazed that it had persisted so long, but realizing that it could not endure much longer, we dug it out and brought it back to the nursery. It turned out to be Fuzzy Deutzia, an heirloom shrub, once common to Southern Gardens, but now rarely seen.  Freed from its torture it has grown vigorously in the nursery. .

We have different sized plants.. Ask about pricing.
