Deutzia gracillis Nikko

Deutzia

Closely related to Philadelphus, these deciduous Asian shrubs are named after Johann van der Deutz, a lawyer, town councilor and amateur botanist from Amsterdam. Gracing the garden with a lovely long lasting profusion of flowers, Deutzias are simple to cultivate in any well-drained fertile soil.

Unfurling from a galaxy of small round buds, dainty five-petaled crisp white blooms illuminate this tailored low growing Japanese cultivar. ‘Nikko’s diminutive dark forest green leaves fashion a compact ground cover-like shrub that entertains wine red shades in autumn and makes a stellar candidate for the rockery, nestling along steps or any other cozy nook.

Blooms March – April.

Size: 2' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 5.

AVAILABLE SPRING 2016

Our favorite plant this week: What's not to love about this adorable Primula? Steeped in charm and easily grown, this hard-to-find old-fashioned Primrose promises to please with nearly evergreen foliage and a blooming season, extending from spring to fall. A plentiful showing of rose-like buds and splendid lilac-pink double flowers adorn broad textured spring green foliage that forms a generous long-lived clump. Bright shade, well-drained soil and above average moisture will ensure its success.
