Deutzia gracilis 'Yuki Cherry' Pink Deuztia
Yuki Cherry is a compact, bushy, multi-stemmed, upright-rounded, deciduous shrub that typically matures to only 1-2’ tall but spreads by arching stems which root where they touch the ground.
Tiny, 5-petaled flowers bloom in late spring (May-June) in short panicles along the branches. Petals are a soft pink with white along the margins on the outside and white with light violet tinting on the inside. Flowers purportedly resemble showy cherry blossoms hence the trade name. Many of the deutzias have no fall color, but the leaves of this species turn an attractive purple-bronze.
