Easy-going but probably best with some shade from deciduous trees and shrubs. Grow Cyclamen and Scillas through it.
Male and female plants are available.
The female form has denser clusters of flowers with conspicuous bracts. Black berries are occasionally produced

I used to think Deutzias were a rather boring group of shrubs but the cognoscenti know different. It's a surprisingly varied genus and many of them are exquisite in flower.
A seldom-seen scrambling shrub with subtly variegated clover-like foliage (2 or 3 shades of green) and rich pink pea flowers.
Either grow it among other shrubs so it can scramble about among them, or, if you feel motivated, train it against a wall. Either way it makes a very welcome splash of colour in late summer and autumn
