Description

Variegated version of Deutzia 'Nikko'. Why plant plain green when you can enjoy neat, clean variegation? Crème Fraiche® deutzia is a showy plant that shines anywhere it's planted. It flowers abundantly, but the white flowers disappear somewhat into the variegation. Like most variegated plants, it will have the occasional reversion, which is easily pruned out.

Growing Tips Variegation makes Crème Fraiche deutzia more shade tolerant than other types. Afternoon shade is beneficial in the warmer end of its hardiness range.
