Maintenance Notes: 

Best in moist, well-drained soil. Prune to shape after flowering.

Pure white flowers appear in spring, and the crisp variegated foliage is attractive all season long.

It's similar to Deutzia 'Nikko', but with attractive variegated foliage. This is a showy plant that shines when planted near yellow flowered annuals and perennials. Like most variegated plants, it will have the occasional reversion, but is still a very attractive garden plant. Try it in your container designs!
