    This is a pretty, delicate-looking, deciduous shrub with wiry twigs that burst into life in late winter and early spring when the crimson buds open to display pale pink flowers. The young leaves are long and pale green, growing darker with age, and turning glorious shades of red and orange in autumn. It has compact, rounded shape and a gently spreading habit, which makes it an excellent shrub for small gardens, or for a Japanese-style garden.

  • 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.

Unfortunately the flowers had faded when it arrived so i haven't been able to appreciate it in flower. It is now covered in buds so I am looking forward to enjoying it's full effect. It has survived the snow.

Planted three years ago and is an absolute joy. From interesting bare branches delicate pink flowers adorn this shrub in the spring (will last for over a week in a vase if you treat yourself to snipping a branch for the house), these are joined by fresh green young leaves. It sits quietly over the summer and rewards again with gorgeous autumn colour. An undemanding multiseasonal must have!

malcolm

Hello, Yes, if you want to keep the risk of silverleaf at bay, then early summer is ideal. It's best to keep it to a minimum though.

Helen

Are these cherries edible?

Wardy

Hello, I would not advise that you eat the fruit of this cherry as it is grown for its ornamental value.

Helen

Is it too late to buy this for a container?

Gumboot

Hello, No, these can be potted up carefully at any time of the year.

Helen

I have a prunus. Incisa kojou-no-mai when is the best time to prun and how hard do I prun

Dickie

Hello, These plants need little pruning, apart from a light trim in summer to retain the shape and remove any dead, diseased or crossing branches.

Helen

I have just been given this shrub in a pot. Lots of buds on it. Should l sprinkle slow release fertiliser pellets around it?

Carrie

Hello, Yes, now is the time to be feeding most plants, so applying a slow release fertiliser would be a great idea.

Helen

Hi, I have a 10 year old Kojo-no-mai growing happily in a large pot and I would like to plant another one but this time next to the front door. We have very poor clay and stony soil (remnant of being a new build house) and when we have heavy rain the water does gather near the steps. Would this preclude me from growing it as a shrub please? The position is east facing and exposed to winds but the potted plant on the door step has survived so far. Many thanks!

Ben's mum

Hello, These plants will grow in partial shade, however they much prefer (and will produce more flowers) in a sunny spot. As for the soil, if you prepare the ground well before you plant and remove as much of the builders rubble as possible, then it should be fine, provided the soil does not remain waterlogged for any length of time.

margaret

Hello there I would plant into a container approx 40cm diameter to start with, and then you can pot on as it grows. Hope this helps

Does this tree suffer from diseases

Flower

Hello there Prunus, including this plant can suffer from various diseases, but if the plant is given the right conditions and is healthy then this shouldn't be a problem. Hope this helps

Is this suitable for growing in a pot?

Newbie Gardener

Hello, Yes, this would do very well in a large pot provided it is kept well fed and watered.
