Product details

Prunus Tai Haku is a beautifully free flowering Japanese Cherry species.

In the spring time this tree gives its greatest display; the large, single white flowers emerge profusely and contrast magnificently with its young, copper coloured foliage.

In the autumn time this tree gives its second show with foliage turning yellow/orange before falling.

This tree has long been a favoured cherry, winning the First Class Certificate in 1944, the Award of Merit in 1931 and the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
Interestingly the Great White Cherry was re-introduced into its native Japan by the famous cherry enthusiast Captain Collingwood Ingram in 1932 after he found a species growing in a garden in Sussex.

Prunus Tai Haku is a medium sized tree which produces a rounded shaped crown at maturity.

Like all cherries, it prefers to be planted on a well drained soil, avoiding clay and wet soils is thus recommended.

This super tree really does live up to its “great” name, producing a display of blossom which is unrivalled by other species.

Be sure to plant this tree where its beauty can be appreciated; it is a useful choice for avenue planting, where planting distances of approximately 10-15m is recommended.

Mature height: 7-12m
