Features

The first-ever ‘Nikko’-type deutzia with pink flowers – over ten years in the making!

Perfectly pretty pink flowers on a deutzia. A shower of elegant pink flowers creates a carpet of color. Great for mass plantings because of its neat, mounded habit and burgundy-purple fall color, this tough, adaptable plant makes an excellent groundcover, especially on a sunny slope.

Top three reasons to plant Yuki Cherry Blossom® Deutzia:

  • Pink, bell-like flowers cover the plant in spring
  • Loves sun and resists deer
  • Excellent groundcover, and works especially well on slopes
