Prunus incisa Koja-no-mai is a cherry that flowers early with delightful single flowers that open before the leaves in early spring, their petals white or palest pink, becoming deeper in tone in the centre. This plant is adored in Japan for its blossom.
A compact, bushy deciduous shrub with zig-zag branches bearing serated mid-green, lance-shaped leaves, that turn a glorios bronze as the year goes on. Slow growing, P. Kojo-no-mai works well in small gardens. As it hails from Mount Fuji, it is no surprise it thrives even in poor conditions.
Prunus incisa Koja-no-mai has won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
