Deuzia scabra is a variety from China and Japan. It is quite widespread thanks to its characteristics that make it a very rustic and resistant plant, so much so that it does not suffer from late spring frosts after which it has a flowering composed of simple white flowers that can also have pink hues.
- Deutzia is a rustic plant, easy to grow, much appreciated for its small white or pink flowers. It is a medium sized shrub, which generally tends to settle for its own small flowers.

- Evergreen tree or shrub native to Ireland and countries bordering the Mediterranean, which can reach 9-10 meters high, but which most commonly remains around the size of a tree or shrub.
The deutery rough is an ornamental plant, reaches the height of two to three meters and a diameter of 1.20-1.80 m.
The bark is brown and detaches from the branches.
The leaves of this plant are ovate and ovate-lanceolate, pale green in colour.
The flowers of deuzia are cupped, white, suffused on the outside with pink. It blooms in June-July with flowers gathered in erect cobs.
The following varieties are worth mentioning: candid with double white flowers; Flore pleno: with white flowers tinged with pinkish purple outside; Pride of Rochester: with double white flowers.
This plant variety prefers very sunny locations and well protected from air currents. Deutthia can also be planted in semi-shaded areas but to achieve maximum development and the possibility of witnessing a copious flowering is necessary to ensure the plant the ability to receive direct sunlight for many hours a day. The lack of this will result in the least development and slowest growth of the shrub.
Deuzia prefers a temperate climate and cannot stand cold temperatures; in cold climates it is necessary to protect it with protective cloths and mulch materials, leaves or straw that protect the roots from the effects of sub-zero temperatures.
The deuzia plants require, in summer, frequent and rather abundant watering, always checking, however, that the soil does not present dangerous stagnations of water that could compromise the health of the plant. During the period of vegetative rest, the watering are not so necessary and can be more spaced in winter.
The fertilizer develops the foliage to the disadvantage of flowering, so it will be necessary in the spring to add a third of sand and a little mature manure to the soil.
For the multiplication of this variety of plant, cuttings are taken from the semi-ripe lateral shoots in spring or autumn and are rooted in a mixture of soil and sand. After rooting, they are planted in individual pots to allow the new plants to gain strength and vigour.
The pruning of the deuzia is done to allow a good flowering in the following year. The pruning should be done after flowering by trimming the branches by a third of their length. In July, the adult flowering stems are cut at ground level to allow the growth of new shoots.
In spring, dry branches or branches damaged by the cold during the winter should be removed.
This variety of plant is rather rustic and does not present particular requirements with regard to the type of soil in which to grow. For this reason, any type of soil that is well drained can be used. In fact, one of the problems that can affect the health of this plant is the fact that at the base can form stagnations of water that could prove very dangerous as they could allow the formation of root rot.
Deuzia – Deutzia: Pests and Malattie
I sprouts of this type of plant are attacked in spring by black aphids.
The larva of the gracilaria syringella butterfly infects the leaves, staining them with brown.
It is attacked by some fungi that cause yellow or brown spots on the leaves.
For this reason it is necessary to provide targeted insecticide treatments, which allow to effectively counteract the different types of diseases that can affect the deuzia, but it will be necessary to remember that any product will be used when the plant is not yet in the flowering phase.
