(Dwarf Slender Deutzia)
Botanical Name: Deutzia gracilis 'Nikko'
Dwarf Slender Deutzia
Small, pure white flowers cover the plant in mid to late May. Very showy.
The leaves are deep green throughout the summer and will turn a deep purple for the fall.
A non-showy dry capsule.
Low growing mound that is quite dense. The graceful branches sometimes root in as they rest on the ground.
Two feet tall by four to five feet wide.
While doing best in full sun 'Nikko' can take some very light shade.
Description: This cultivar is very interesting because its leaves are a deep green, far more shiny and thick than the other forms. Also, it tends to grow a bit lower, perhaps not more than 2 feet high, and spreads more.
