Prunus ‘shimidsu sakura’

Common Name: Asahi Botan Cherry


The Asahi Botan Cherry Tree is the last of the ornamental cherry tree types to flower. Its flowers appear in the late spring to early summer, and this often coincides with the new growth of bright green foliage. The flowers are double cluster of white and pink and hold well on the trees, given that its later flowering period is after the strong spring winds. It boasts a wonderful fiery orange autumn colour holding into early winter. A gracefully arching tree becoming flat topped with regular pruning.
