The beautiful Prunus Amanogawa holds the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. The name comes the Japanese word meaning ‘Milky Way’ or ‘Heaven’s River’ which refers to the galaxy. This lovely narrow, column shaped tree is ideal for a small garden and will add interest all year round.
The main attraction are the dense clusters of fragrant, semi-double pale pink flowers that appear in April. They burst from the branches, creating an eye-catching display that will thrill. The flowers have a discreet, sweet scent, reminiscent of almonds, which makes this tree a delightful sensory addition to a garden. The flowers fade to almost white as they mature, ending with a purplish-pink heart before disappearing in the autumn. The spring foliage is a bronze green that turns to a deeper mid green in the summer. As autumn approaches, the leaves become a stunning red, fiery orange and bright yellow before falling.
Prunus 'Amanogawa' makes the perfect choice for city and suburban gardens as it is pollution tolerant. It is hardy and grows in most types of soil. For best results, plant in an area that receives full sun. Try to avoid very wet soils or shallow chalky areas.
The upright habit makes it perfect to plant as an ornamental tree or in a small group, creating a focal point in a garden. The Japanese Flowering Cherry also makes a great edging for lawns and can be used to line a garden pathway, walkway or larger avenues in public venues.
