Prunus incisa Kojo-no-mai (Fuji cherry)
A delightful hardy deciduous shrub of compact growth and delicate appearance, the slender wiry branches come alive in early spring as the crimson buds develop, finally opening to reveal masses of delicate pink flowers. The leaves unfurl after flowering, elongated and pale green at first before deepening to dark green and then brilliantly colourful shades of orange and crimson in late Autumn. Compact and rounded growth that is naturally bushy.
A lovely little flowering cherry that is well suited to sunny borders in both large and small gardens, growing in containers and would be ideal for Japanese themes. 2m x 2m.
