Combine shrubs that bloom in early spring with those that continue to provide color into summer. Compact varieties stay neat in winter after their leaves have dropped.    Slender Deutzia is a mound of slender, flower-filled branches. 'Nikko' blooms in spring with white flowers and dark blue-green foliage. Can grow up to 2 feet high and 5 feet wide; USDA Hardiness Zones 5 to 8.

Test Garden Tip: Make a bold statement by selecting varieties that offer different shapes and colors, but stay compact so they don't outgrow their space.
