Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia
Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia is a great plant that will fit well into many different landscape areas. This is a compact, low growing hybrid plant. It grows in a spreading, mounding growth habit. It has branches that arch towards the ground, rooting in where they touch. It is densely branched, giving it a nice full look with all the foliage. The leaves are about 3 inches long, oval in shape with serrated edges, coming to a point at the end. The leaves are dark green in the growing season, and unlike most deutzias, they have great purple-bronze fall color. The flowers grow in small clusters along the branches. They are small, with 5 petals with a resemblance to cherry blossoms. They have a light pink overall color with white along the margins.
Deutzia ‘NCDX2’ grows to 12 to 24 inches tall, with a similar spread. It is recommended for climate zones 5 to 8. It can grow in full to partial sun. Yuki grows best in rich, well drained soils with moderate amounts of moisture. It is adaptable to wide range of conditions. It doesn’t seem to have any disease or insect issues. The flowers can take damage from late spring frosts.
