This flowering cherry is a cross between prunus sargentii and prunus subhirtella, both of which are flowering cherries. In early spring it produces masses of semi double light pink flowers that can withstand a few degrees of late frosts since they start blooming in early April already.

Deciduous leaves are typically cherry-like, i.e. deep green, finely serrated at margins, 7-10 cm long. The crown is quite irregular with slender branches and its shape is a perfect feature for which this cherry is popular in Japanese gardens where it beautifully contrasts with sharply shaped shrubs.

Flowering cherries are not too fussy about soil type but will do best in constantly moist but well-drained, slightly acidic soil, in full sun. They can take frost and wind, and remember to stake freshly planted trees well to a support for the first couple of years. Hardy to about -27°C (USDA zone 5)
