Yuki Cherry Blossom® Deutzia
A Shrub with Gorgeous Cherry Blossoms
Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia has a lot to offer. It’s a hardy, vibrant shrub with 3 season interest, and exquisite flowers. Each 5-petaled blossom features pink coloring with white margins on the outside of the petal, and a lighter, creamy-pink shade inside. A closer look reveals a hint of yellow and white from the delicate stamens at the centers. This gorgeous mix of coloring culminates in a multi-toned appearance on the bell-shaped flowers.
The 5/8-inch blossoms gather together in clusters to form short panicles amid the branches from late spring into early summer. Yuki’s 3-inch, dark green leaves provide a handsome backdrop for the cherry blossom-like flowers. In autumn, those same leaves transition to a lively burgundy for a spicy accent in your autumn landscape.
Your Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia, Deutzia x 'NCDX2', is a deciduous, ornamental shrub that will grow up to 2 feet tall with an equal spread. It has a multi-stemmed, upright habit and compact nature. Yuki is low maintenance and easy to grow. It’s drought tolerant and even deer tend to leave it alone. In ideal conditions, Yuki Cherry Blossom will self-propagate, so it’s great for a naturalized area. However, even just one would be a radiant presence in your yard from spring through fall.
If you love cherry blossoms (and who doesn’t), then Yuki Cherry Blossom is a way to bring that delicate beauty to your home this year (without the need to plant a cherry tree). Yuki Cherry Blossom is a diminutive shrub that requires very little room, and even less of your time, but still provides a sumptuous display of color.
