Prunus 'Taihaku' originated from Japan and sadly became extinct. A single variety was found many years later in a home garden in Sussex and this lovely tree was rescued, replanted and lives on to create a wonderful sight in a modern garden!
The Great White Cherry Tree, as the name implies is a large and imposing tree, best suited to medium and large sized gardens. It is also ideal for parklands, public spaces, long avenues and large garden exhibition centres.
Your Prunus 'Taihaku' offers clusters of long-stalked, single icy-white flowers in spring that emerge from pink buds. The flowers are larger than those found on other Cherry trees and measure almost 5cm across. Purple-bronze leaves appear with the flowers in spring, creating an attractive contrast before turning to a mid-green in summer. In autumn, the show continues with a fiery display of vibrant yellow and orange before the leaves finally fall in winter.
This tree has a vigorous, spreading, rounded habit and will reach heights of 7m and spreads of 8m in a 20 year period. It is fully hardy and can be planted in full sun. Prunus 'Taihaku' is tolerant of most soil types, apart from very wet or chalky areas. It is also ideal for urban gardens as it is tolerant of pollution.
If you have a larger garden, do not hesitate to plant one or more beautiful Great White Cherry Trees. They will become a special focal point as your garden matures, offering a display of stunning large white flowers.
