Product Information

Prunus serrulata 'Pink Perfection' is indeed hard to fault in any way - a great garden tree where space is limited, it forms a neat canopy of upright branches, smothered in the most gorgeous cherry blossom.

The large, double, pink blooms are up to 5cm across and open from dark pink buds, forming drooping clusters along the branches. Lightly fragrant, they're a sure sign that spring has arrived!

The show of colour doesn't stop there either as the leaves open bronze, later green, with some orange tints in autumn, before turning bright red before they fall.

An award-winning, British-bred form of the widely planted and hugely popular Prunus Kanzan, Pink Perfection is a more compact, less vigorous form small enough for planting in smaller gardens.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 5L pot, ready for immediate planting, will grow to approx. 3m (10ft). Like most cherries this lovely specimen tree prefers to be planted in a well-drained soil as it does not like getting its feet wet!

Care Information

Planting Advice for Prunus serrulata 'Pink Perfection'

  • Pot-grown trees can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove your prunus from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your tree in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • Apply a tree guard to the trunk to deter rabbits.


Aftercare Advice for your Japanese Flowering Cherry 'Pink Perfection'

  • If you’re planting in spring or summer, water 'Pink Perfection' well and regularly for the first few months.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant after planting and thereafter annually.

Pruning Advice for Prunus Flowering Cherry

  • To prune, simply remove any branches that are dead, damaged or diseased in midsummer after flowering. In general, no pruning is required.
