A spectacular tree and arguably one of the finest Japanese cherry trees for year round interest. Native to Northern and Central Japan, Prunus sargentii has masses of large, single, white flushed pink flowers in spring.

The leaves are a bronze/green when they emerge in spring, darkening to a lush green in the summer before turning magnificent shades of crimson and orange in autumn time. Once mature, the bark also becomes particularly ornamental and gradually turns a rich glossy-brown.
