This beautiful Deutzia x ‘Cherry Dream’ was introduced at the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair in 2021 by us here at Hillier. Its striking pale pink and dark cherry flowers are produced in loose panicles. Like all Deutzias it is easy to look after, reliable and extremely versatile making it a fantastic plant for both novice and beginner gardeners. The ‘Cherry Dream’ typically blooms in late spring to early summer, typically in May and June. During this period, its branches become decorated with clusters of striking cherry coloured flowers.
