Just Over a Foot Tall, and Packed with Pristine Blooms

When this low bush is in bloom, it looks like a snowball!
PPAF 'NCDX1'.

The perfect spring bloomer to give you one last reminder of winter's beauty! The creamy white blooms create a carpet of snowy blossoms over a low, spreading bush. Just one of these Deutzias makes a fine specimen or container plant, but the effect becomes more and more impressive the more you mass the plants. This striking, snowy display is why 'Yuki Snowflake' was named a "Must Grow New Shrub for 2014" by Better Homes and Gardens.

The foliage is deciduous, coming on a dark green and turning burgundy in the fall. The blooms transform the look of the shrub, illuminating the dark leaves with bright masses of white. And since this plant is unpalatable to deer, you get to keep that beauty and fragrance for yourself all season.

Pruning is not necessary, but it can help Snowflake™ grow more dense and tidy. Once a year the flowering stems can be cut down flush with the foliage, and every few years the entire shrub can be cut back, to encourage bushier growth.

Very easy to grow in sun to partial shade (full sun is best for heaviest flowering), this Japanese native tolerates drought and poor soil once established. The small (2 ½-inch) leaves are soft green, making an attractive presence in the border or container. Zones 5 to 8.
