  • Soil: tolerates most soils

    A compact, often multi-stemmed tree, which has clusters of large, fragrant, semi-double pale pink blossoms that smother the branches in late spring. This upright, columnar Japanese cherry is one of the best ornamental trees for a small garden. It will thrive in any soil but does need plenty of sunshine to flower well.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.
