Notes:

This is a bush that that I planted about 25 years ago from a half gallon pot. I’ve never fertilized it and it doesn’t always get watered. It’s right next to a huge dogwood that it competes with for morning sun. It has a multiple branch base and is maybe 15 feet tall. The individual flowers are white with dark pink on the under side of the bottom petals which are about 3/4 inch across and they remind me of a very tiny lily. The biggest leaves are about 3″ long. It blooms in the summer.

    It’s a Deutzia scabra ÔCodsall PinkÕ I wish I had planted it in a different spot… I wasn’t very good at that 25 years ago. The dogwood mostly covers it now. Thanks again, laura735

    Not able to see the rest of the plant (i.e. branches & more of its leaves). I’m guessing yours is a type Deutzia? Click on link below for variety of Deutzia.
