Plant of the Week: Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia

Plant of the Week: Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia

You know that Deutzia is a charmer in spring, but were you expecting a fall display, too? You should!

Yuki Cherry Blossom™ Deutzia entrances us each spring with its pink flowers; they are very princess-y but even the tough guys around the nursery like them. Look at them in our greenhouse (above photo). Check out that fall foliage! That's where the princess shows what she's really made of.

Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia stays a tidy 1-2' tall and wide.

This princess plant is actually a tough cookie - it's deer resistant. Yet butterflies and hummingbirds love those spring flowers. Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia is hardy to USDA Zone 5 and grows 1-2' tall. If you grow Deutzia 'Nikko', delight in this new pink version of the go-to spring plant.

Bonus read: Tim "The Plant Hunter" Wood brings an in depth look at what it takes to bring new Deutzia varieties to retail in Deutzia Redux.
