    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

    Deutzia and hydrangeas are botanically related (i.e., by the number and arrangement of their flower parts) - they're basically cousins!

    • I bought 3 of these. They were planted in a part sun flower bed. It flowers nicely for about a week in early spring, but looks ugly for the rest of the seasons. It grows lanky, and even with fertilizing and pruning it looks pretty bad. I've had them in the ground for 3 years and finally decided they are just taking up space, so I pulled them up.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • I planted four of this deutzia in my full sun landscape. They looked gorgeous next to roses and dwarf boxwood. I live in Pennsylvania and we've had a wet year, but it appears that they couldn't handle the sun. They turned black and have a dry appearance, even with watering on dry days. Everything else is flourishing. I would love to incorporate the deutzia to a shadier area of my landscape in the future.

      Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
    • 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.
