This flowering cherry is grafted with paperbark cherry as the interstem, resulting in a trunk with shiny mahogany red bark that peels as it ages. Superb lawn tree that puts on an early season show with clusters of large, double deep pink blooms backed by bronze-red new growth. Upright, vase-shaped branching habit. Deciduous.

Design Ideas: A striking accent tree with dozens of potential applications. Makes an outstanding focal point for close range flower inspection and long range overall visibility. When planted in pairs they mark an entry, frame a view or call attention to a notable work of art in the landscape. A superior small tree for country gardens against a dark evergreen or forested background. Size fits nicely into the front yard tree on smaller city lots.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.


Cherry trees have long been an integral part of the Japanese tea garden. Their blossoms are a beloved symbol of spring and are among the few flowering plants in those landscapes.
