Prunus serrulata (Flowering Cherry) Details

Prunus serrulata is a variety of flowering cherry that features masses of very showy, pink blossoms in early spring. The flowers are borne before the foliage emerges and continue for several weeks. The foliage emerges yellow-green in spring, ages to become dark green, then develops colourful orange and red tones in autumn before falling. It grows with a vase shape to about 4 m tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in a full sun position on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of frost, cool climates, and short periods of dry. This cherry is stunning when in flower and makes a fine addition to any garden. It is commonly used in avenue plantings, grown as a specimen, or added to a mixed planting.
