With its eye-catching blossom, this Dwarf Japanese Flowering Cherry is a bushy tree perfect for smaller gardens, giving interest in both spring and autumn. The upright, chestnut-brown branching stems are simply smothered in attractive single, pale pink flower, which develop from pink buds, and will be smothered in bees too!
The serrated bronze-rust leaves emerge soon after, turning mid-green in the summer and then to a dramatic orange and red in the autumn.
Prunus nipponica Brilliant makes a delightful specimen tree, and is suitable for a large container.
