Product details

Prunus yedoensis originated from Japan around 1902 and won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2002. 

It is reportedly a cross between Prunus speciosa and Prunus x subhirtella and is now thought to occurring as a natural hybrid in Japan.

The single blush white flowers emerge before the foliage in the spring, they hang in clusters of 5 or 6 and a subtly fragrant almond scent. 

The leaves emerge a coppery colour towards the end of the floral display, they are serrated on the margins and deep green in colour, turning to red-orange in the autumn time. 

This pretty tree also exhibits a small fruit which is dark red-black in colour and contains a stone.

Prunus yedoensis has widely arching branches that almost create a weeping effect, although is best described as broad and flat crowned. 

Like all cherries this tree prefers to be planted in a well drained soil and does not enjoy having wet feet.

This tree is a stunning choice for parkland and gardens and is best planted with the space to allow the crown to spread in order to make the most of this wonderfully architectural cherry.

Mature Height: 3-7m
