Plant details

Okame' is a cherry that will give a wonderful show in spring and autumn. From early spring it bears clusters of cup-shaped, carmine-pink flowers in profusion. Then, in autumn, the dark green leaves start to turn from orange to red, before they fall. It has a bushy, rounded shape and could be grown in a smaller garden.

I have just bought a apple blossom and planted it this week. I have heard that there is a way to train it that would enable its branches to weep. Any ideas or help would be fantastic
