Description

Flowering cherry tree Prunus ‘Shirotae’ is a small to medium domed deciduous cherry tree with an attractive weeping habit.

This flowering cherry tree is unusual because it flowers when most other trees are bare. The single flowers are single and white. In autumn the leaves turn from green to yellow to give good autumn colour. Prunus ‘PendulaRubra’ is ideal for a small or medium garden.

This tree has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden tree. Although flowering cherry trees are related to the edible cherries (they are all members of the prunus family), these ornamental cherry trees are grown for their beautiful blossom and good autumn colour. Many also have attractive satiny bark, so the trees remain interesting all through the year.

If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.

Prune Ornamental Cherries in summer to prevent the risk of silver leaf disease and bacterial canker entering the pruning cuts.

Rootstock: Colt

Height at full growth: 8m/26ft

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.

The vast majority of the trees we ship have been pruned and will appear trimmed.
