Description

A Quick-Spreading Dwarf Shrub

Small cherry blossom-style blooms appear in spring atop red scapes just 2 feet tall

A glorious cascade of cream-colored, magenta-painted blooms is something you used to only see on large, mature Sakura trees. But now you can recreate that glorious mass bloom show with much smaller and easier plants. The Deutzia Yuki Cherry Blossom® grows just 1 to 2 feet tall, but in the spring it puts on one impressive color show. The creamy white blooms are blushed with magenta markings, creating a carpet of cherry blossoms over a low, spreading bush. Just one of these Deutzias makes a fine specimen or container plant, but the effect becomes more and more impressive the more you mass the plants.

The foliage is deciduous, coming on a dark green and turning burgundy in the fall. The blooms transform the look of the shrub, illuminating the dark leaves with bright white and pink. And since this plant is unpalatable to deer, you get to keep that beauty and fragrance for yourself all season.

Pruning is not necessary, but it can help Deutzia Yuki Cherry Blossom® grow more dense and tidy. Once a year the flowering stems can be cut down flush with the foliage, and every few years the entire shrub can be cut back, to encourage bushier growth.

Very easy to grow in sun to partial shade (full sun is best for heaviest flowering), this Japanese native tolerates drought and poor soil once established. The small (2 1/2-inch) leaves are soft green, making an attractive presence in the border or container.

Tiny, beautiful blooms

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We purchased six of these shrubs to complement our Japanese Cutleaf Red Maples. The plants arrived in excellent condition, and are as advertised. I was unable to get them planted right away, but they appear to have suffered no ill effects from the 5-6 day delay, as they are beginning to bloom very well. We appear to have a winner in these. TYVM Wayside. We will be back.

"Yuki Cherry Blossom" Deutzia

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have no experience with this plant, but it seems like it will be a good fit for a part sun location in my Japanese garden. I was very impressed with the condition and the size of the plant in spite of the Friday delivery date being missed causing it to languish at the UPS distribution center over the weekend. It was very well packed and must have been sufficiently watered before shipping. I unboxed the items I ordered immediately upon delivery, but had to hold off on planting due to a cold front that was to drop lows into the 20s. I think it grew four inches in the eight days I held it before planting in anticipation of rain..

Love it

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The plant specimen was excellent. Already planted and growing great. The only thing is when I bought them they had already bloomed. But I am sure there will be beautiful blooms next year with the way it has grown already.
