If you love blossoms and want to have your garden adorned with them as long as possible, the Prunus 'Shirofugen' is a late-flowering Cherry tree. It is often the last to bloom, and the stunning double white flowers will remain on the branches well into June. It offers big, white blooms that open from pink buds and hang in clusters from long stalks that cover the branches. As the blossoms mature, the colour deepens into a purplish-pink.
The flowers of this Flowering Cherry Tree are particularly striking set against the young bronze-copper foliage. The leaves turn to a deeper mid-green in summer and then put on a great display of vibrant orange and red in the autumn before falling.
Prunus 'Shirofugen' is the perfect ornamental tree for a medium sized garden and will attain heights of 7m and a spread of 7m in a 20 year period. It has a lovely spreading habit with an umbrella-like crown and can be used to form a wonderful canopy for a garden bench or a secluded hide-away spot.
Your Prunus 'Shirofugen' is fully hardy and is also tolerant of pollution, making it ideal for urban gardens. It will tolerate most soil types but try to avoid very wet or chalky areas. This delightful specimen tree holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
If you are searching for a unique gift idea for a loved one, offering a tree is a truly sentimental idea and the Prunus 'Shirofugen' is the perfect choice.
