Plant details

Nothing typifies the spring garden better than cherry trees covered with blossom. The Yoshino cherry is more subtle than most, in early April its branches are clothed with single pale-pink blooms that have a delicate fragrance. These are followed later in the year by small, red fruits. The handsome oval leaves have hairy undersides and colour well in the autumn. They make ideal trees for small gardens, providing interest throughout the year and casting a light shade.
