Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia
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 slope
