Design IdeasThis is the perfect flowering Cherry for the small city gardens of town homes, condominiums and bungalows. Ideal plant for any landscape with an Asian theme. The consummate tree of the Japanese tea garden, it is planted as a single specimen where it can be appreciated from as many vantage points as possible. Offers a cottage- and country-garden character in limited garden spaces. Plant in matched pairs to highlight a special gateway or frame a work of garden art. Particularly charming in small groves, which add light and diversity to woodland settings.
