Buy Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' dwarf Japanese flowering cherry: A profusion of double pink flowers in spring

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: tolerates most soils
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The flowers of this small, rounded tree are exquisite, and create a wonderful display in mid-spring. Deep pink-red buds cover the branches in late spring, opening to double pink blooms which hang in large clusters among the young bronze leaves. During summer the dark green leaves cover this small, spreading tree. The dense, twiggy crown of this small tree has been grafted on to the upright stem of the rootstock at a height of 45cm, which will limit the eventual height. Ideal for growing in a container, or 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. A fantastic, free-flowering Japanese cherry suitable for all gardens.

  • 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.

If grown in a container, what size pot would this need please, and would it need any extra care over and above the guidance in your description as a result of living in a pot?

Miss Magpie

Hello, This tends to do well in a pot provided it is kept well fed and watered. The size of the pot will depend on whether or not you want to pot it straight up into its forever home (this pot will probably need to be around 75 x 75cm), or do it in stages as it grows.
