YUKI-DOUROU (Schnee-Laterne) Kirschblütenrosa-Weiß. Spätblühende große Blüte in achtfacher oder tausendfacher Blüte. Am Anfang ist sie weiß und dann bekommt der Blütenboden eine hellkirschblütenrosa Farbe.

Yukitoro. (Snow Lantern). Japan. Japanese suffruticosa. Large white ball shaped double flowers with rosey purple flares. Petals are fluted along their length and have many small notches at their ends. Beautiful deep blue-green foliage is the perfect backdrop for the flowers. Very ornate flowers are presented well on medium height plants (4' in Wisconsin). Fertile both ways, but you'll need to search for pollen.
