Product details

This cherry is sometimes referred to as Mount Fuji and was introduced to Britain in the early 1900s.

Like most weeping varieties it gets better with age and at maturity it can be overwhelmingly stunning when seen in full flower against a blue spring sky.

It won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

Gently weeping is perhaps the best way to describe the habit of this small but vigorous tree.

Green fringed foliage is followed by very large single and semi-double pure white flowers.

Very good for verges parks and gardens.


Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 5-7m
