Deutzia  Monzia

Deutzia

Closely related to Philadelphus, these deciduous Asian shrubs are named after Johann van der Deutz, a lawyer, town councilor and amateur botanist from Amsterdam. Gracing the garden with a lovely long lasting profusion of flowers, Deutzias are simple to cultivate in any well-drained fertile soil.

Deutzia ‘Monzia’ full sun

This exuberant bloomer parades dense frothy clusters of striking star-styled flowers, gradating in color from deep to light pink with white at the base and along the margins of each pretty petal. Opposite elliptical green leaves line long gracefully arching stems and older stalks, which sport exfoliating reddish brown bark. A robust easily cultivated hybrid between Deutzia longifolia and Deutzia discolor, ‘Monzia’ is well-suited for a mixed border or an informal hedge, where its deciduous upright visage and amazing floriferous display appreciate good drainage, moderate fertility and an occasional hard pruning.

Blooms May–June

Size: 7' 0" high x 5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
