Tips for Care

Give this eminently desirable deciduous shrub a spot in full sun or part sun. It requires at least four hours of direct sunlight a day.

Deutzia needs well-drained soil, and a regular amount of supplemental water. If your soil retains water for a long time, you’ll want to bring in additional soil to create a raised bed. The higher the bed, the closer you’ll be able to study your plant in bloom!

Mulch is a good idea for these plants. Just be sure to pull back the mulch from around the stems.

The beautiful blooms develop on previous years’ wood. Wait until after flowering to lightly prune to shape and remove the spent flower panicles directly after flowering. It’s a happy task, and gives you time to appreciate time with your Yuki Cherry Blossom®.
