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 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!

Care Information

Planting Advice for Prunus serrulata 'Pink Perfection'

  • Select an appropriate spot with enough space to allow your plants to grow.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, then add some good quality fertiliser, compost or well-rotted manure.
  • Holding the tree upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Compact the soil around the plant with your heel to ensure good contact around the roots.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
  • For all trees, use our Tree Planting Kits – including stakes, rubber ties and Mycorrhizal fungi, which is proven to aid tree growth and development.
  • Push 40cm of each stake into the soil next to each tree. Make a figure of eight around both the trunk and stake with a tie and fasten it off. Spread Mycorrhizal granules in contact with the roots when planting.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc
  • Water the plants at least weekly – especially in dry weather – for the first 8 weeks.
  • When the soil and air warm up in spring, you should see the plant burst into life.
  • Do not allow plants to dry out.
  • Once established for one season, they will become much more tolerant to a lack of water, as the root system develops.

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.
