2017 Landscape Plant of the Year: Yuki Cherry Blossom™ Deutzia

11/17/2016 - Yuki Cherry BlossomDeutzia has been selected as the 2017 Plant of the Year by Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs. Introduced in 2014, its popularity has skyrocketed among landscapers, gardeners and homeowners and is already a top seller in the marketplace.  

Over ten years in the making, Yuki Cherry Blossom™ is the first-ever ‘Nikko’-type deutzia with pink flowers. This dwarf plant is loved for its shower of elegant pink flowers that create a vibrant carpet of color. With its neat, mounded habit and burgundy-purple fall color, it makes an excellent groundcover, especially on a sunny slope. This tough, adaptable plant grows just 1-2' tall and wide and is deer-resistant. 

In September 2016, Yuki Cherry Blossom was awarded a Silver Medal from The Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society at the 34th Annual "Plantarium" show held in the Netherlands. This charming deutzia is the breeding of Dr. Tom Ranney, a professor and researcher at North Carolina State University.  

Yuki Cherry Blossom deutzia will be one of the most talked about plants in 2017 and it delivers on all accounts. Make a plan to feature this dwarf variety next season in your landscaping projects and impress everyone all season long!
