This winter-flowering cherry offers a charming display of semi-double white blossoms, occasionally tinged with pink, from November to March. 'Autumnalis' is an ideal choice for compact spaces and urban settings as it can tolerate pollution. The deep pink buds unfurl into delightful blooms, bringing cheer to even the shortest days. In autumn, the dark-green foliage transforms into captivating shades of yellow, orange, and red, adding further visual appeal.

  • Garden care:
    When planting your ornamental cherry, prepare a hole up to three times the diameter of its root system. Fork over the base of the pit in readiness, incorporating plenty of organic matter into the backfill and planting hole. Avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil, trees should be planted out as they arrive. If you've ordered a bare root tree, soak the roots in a bucket of water for half an hour prior to planting, or if this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily, covering their roots with soil, or potted up. Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Lightly prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker, to retain an open ‘goblet' shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
