Have had great success with D. g. Nikko, so was eager to add this plant to our garden. Performed so well through our wet, warm spring, that I have now added 15 to our garden at the front of shrub borders and people comment on the plants looking like azaleas when in bloom. Great green all summer despite heat and humidity, and dense arching stems in winter dusted with snow are very attractive. More garden centers should offer this plant.

- Hardy Zones
- 5 - 8
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 12 - 24 Inches
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. Available in better garden centers Spring 2015.
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
mass plantings; edges; borders; mixed borders
Pruning is seldom needed, but may be shaped immediately after flowering. Fertilize in the spring.
Deutzia and hydrangea are botanically related (i.e., but the number and arrangement of their flower parts) - they're basically cousins!
