Spring is finally here. One of spring's pleasures and must have plants is the flowering cherry.
Prunus Kiku-Shidare Zakura
The best compact flowering cherry tree. A weeping variety perfect for the smaller garden. Steeply descending branches with clusters of large deep-pink double flowers, followed by bronze foliage which turns crimson and yellow in Autumn
Best planted between October and April, the cherry tree is easy to grow and ideal as a specimen tree in the lawn or in the border underplanted with hellebores and spring bulbs.
Vicky’s Top Tip
Japanese cherry trees are grafted so it is important to buy your tree from a reputable nursery. Azur Borders and Plants can you help you with this, as we can with all your plant purchases.
