Deutzia scabra 'White Slash'- click image
Raulston Arboretum. April 2003. This delightfully mottled cultivar is apparently different from D. crenata 'White Splashed' which may or may not prove to be ordinary 'Mamorata' of older literature and collections. We have not been able to check the flowers yet to determine if the species affinity of D. scabra is correct. There are many variegated Deutzia circulating around, leaf size and chimera density varying widely with the selection of cuttings.
Deutzia 'Strawberry Fields- click image
Raulston Arboretum. Spring 2003. This is one of the best of the pink cultivars and I suspect may become at the top of many people's list of any cultivar in the genus. Note the wide but still reasonably subtle picotee on each flower. This is a true "wow" plant and a slope full of them would simply overwhelm.
