Deutzia is a lesser known cousin of the Hydrangea and has beautiful white (or pink) flowers in the spring.

Like Hydrangeas, the flowers are displayed in clusters and it blooms on old wood. So if you’re going to prune it, make sure you do it immediately after it has finished blooming. Otherwise, you might cut off next year’s buds.
