    The flowers of this small, rounded tree are exquisite, and create a wonderful display in mid-spring. Larger than many of the other ornamental cherries, they have pure white petals, which surround a contrasting cluster of distinctive red anthers. The dense, twiggy crown of this small tree has been grafted on to the upright stem of the rootstock at a height of 45cm, so it will make a fine specimen for a lawn or spring border where it can be underplaned with bulbs. In autumn, the normally green leaves turn rich autumn shades before they drop.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker. Cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.
