Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia Care
Pruning is not necessary but cutting back stems every few years will produce a bushier plant. Flower buds are produced on the previous year’s growth, so prune in late spring or early summer after flowering has ended. New growth is produced from the plant’s base. Deutzia and hydrangeas are botanical cousins. The number and arrangement of flower parts are very similar.
Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia Spacing
Yuki Cherry Blossom Deutzia can be used to create low hedges, in mass plantings, to cover slopes, in perennial borders, in front of shrub borders and in containers. Space individual plants 1 to 2 feet apart.
