YUKI CHERRY BLOSSOM® Deutzia

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 1-2' Width/Spread: 1-2'

Dainty little blooms bunch all over Yuki Cherry Blossom™ deutzia in the springtime. It’s celebrated for vibrant two-toned coloring, medium pink on the outside of the petals and creamy white at the centers. This coloring is quite a triumph! It took ten years to develop a pink version of the beloved ‘Nikko’ that we still see in many gardens today. This pink coloring presents a whole new world of opportunities for plant pairing! Looking lovely at the front of the border, where it would combine nicely with summer flowering shrubs and perennials with similar coloring. Imagine it massed as a groundcover in front of a group of panicle hydrangeas, hinting at the dark pink color show the hydrangeas will bring later on in the season. When positioned as edging, it keeps the border looking lush even if deer are in the area, as it’s quite deer resistant.

Light: Will grow nicely in a range of sun exposures, even shady spots! In warm, southern climates it should be grown with a bit of shade to keep it from burning.

Soil: Performs best in moist soil that drains well.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Isn’t typically needed.

Pruning: Maintains its small size naturally, but it responds well to a trim. If you’d like to prune it, you can do so in the spring after it’s done flowering.
