2017 landscape plant of the year: Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia

Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia 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.

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 creates 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 1-2ft 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 deutzia is the breeding of Dr. Tom Ranney, a professor and researcher at North Carolina State University.
