Growing in clumps to as tall as 1.5m, Deutzia gracilis, a deciduous shrub, inhabits rocks in fields and mountains. Limestone areas also allow it to grow. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis; blades are 4-8cm in length, 1.5-3cm in width, in the shape of a long-oblong-like oblong-ovate, with tips narrowly becoming pointed and bases broadly cuneate to circular, also with fine serrations on margins. Branch tips emerge panicles that set many white flowers facing somewhat downward; petals are 5 in number, 7-10mm long, oblong to long-oblong, with no hairs. Bloom time: April-May.
