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 a bare root plant, 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!
