Prunus x yedoensis
The Yoshino Cherry
Description: A graceful, early flowering tree with upright, spreading branches bearing single, almond scented, blush white flowers in late March, followed by small fruits later in the year that are popular with birds. The green summer foliage turns yellow in autumn, creating a beautiful contrast to the shiny, black fruits.
History: Introduced from Japan to the UK in 1907.
Prunus Growing Tips: Best grown in well-drained soil, in full sun to achieve the best flower display and autumn colour. Will tolerate most soil types including chalk and clay.
Height and Spread (after 10 years): 5m x 5m
