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 underplanted 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 crossing branches.

Four years ago I bought a Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' which is currently 2.6m wide and 3.4m tall. Any idea why?

Discounting that the plant is incorrect, I would say that the height and spread on plant websites are good indicators but the form of the tree, ground and seasonal conditions, and level of care/water/etc all factor in. The tree will likely reduce in growth rate and can be pruned after flowering to maintain the desired height and shape.
