These shrubs are best used among evergreens, where they can make a show when in flower, then blend back in with other greenery later on. Bloom season coincides with that of late-spring bulbs such as tulips and Dutch iris. Prune shrubs after bloom. With low- or medium-growing kinds, cut some of the oldest stems to the ground every other year. Prune tall-growing kinds severely by cutting back wood that has flowered. Cut to outward-facing side branches.Deutzia gracilis
