Introduced in 2014, its popularity has skyrocketed among landscapers, gardeners and homeowners, and it is a top seller in the marketplace, the company said.

Over 10 years in the making, Yuki Cherry Blossom deutzia is the first ‘Nikko’-type deutzia with pink flowers. This deer resistant dwarf plant features pink flowers and grows to be 1-2 feet tall and wide, the company said.

In September, 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 Tom Ranney, Ph.D., a professor and researcher at North Carolina State University.
