Japanese flowering cherry
- Position: full sun
- Soil: tolerates most soils
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: April
- Hardiness: fully hardy
A compact, often multi-stemmed tree, which has clusters of large, fragrant, semi-double pale pink blossoms that smother the branches in late spring. This upright, columnar Japanese cherry is one of the best ornamental trees for a small garden. It will thrive in any soil but does need plenty of sunshine to flower well.
- Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.

Arrived in healthy condition, well protected by the packaging. Now sits in a large pot, providing a focal point to draw the eye. Looking forward to seeing its first blossom

Q:I purchased this tree from you in January this year. I planted it in a 70litre tub and in compost. It has grown about 12 inches in height so far however in the last week the new growth on the top of the tree has wilted dramatically. We are making sure we water it regularly.. Please can you advise? I wondered if it could be verticillium wilt although so far there is no yellowing of leaves. Could it contract this as we planted it in shop bought compost?Asked on 11/6/2016 by Joshua's Mum from Leicestershire
Most reputable brands of compost are sterilised, so I would be suprised if it contained the spores, however I suppose it may be possible. I suspect however that this wilting may be caused by awatering issue - either too much or too little, so make sure he drainage holes in the bottom of the pot are not blocked and keep it well watered during warmer weather.Answered on 23/6/2016 by Helen from crocus
Q:Is it safe to plant a columnar cherry tree within three feet of the house? I am concerned about how the roots grow, do they spread out or downwards?Asked on 5/4/2015 by zoonybear from Crossford
These have spreading roots, so I would not advise planting this so close to a house.Answered on 8/4/2015 by Anonymous from crocus
