It's NOT a full sun plant for me
Several years a go I planted a grouping of Deutzia gracilis 'Chardonnay Pearls'and it's been a problem ever since. For one thing, it has no tolerance for the very common late frosts and freezes we have in spring--even if I cover it, the buds brown and look awful. And despite its being advertised as full sun to partial shade, it simply can't handle full sun and the leaves tend to brown in summer. This spring, it's out of here.
