|Botanical Pronunciation||PROO-nus x yed-oh-EN-sis|
|Lore||The flowering cherry is the quintessential symbol of spring and among the few flowering plants in the traditional Japanese tea garden.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Fast growing; reaches 25 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||This is one of the largest of all flowering Cherry, with a habit that is more spreading than the usual vase shape. Broad canopy means it will provide shade for smaller patios, front yards, and other outdoor living spaces. A stunning single specimen in lawns or when used as a street tree. Even more lovely at your front-yard entry gate or to highlight a cottage garden. Large enough to line driveways or mark vehicle entries. Size makes it a great source of strong spring color in large home landscapes, parks and commercial sites.|
