|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.|
|Companion Plants||Eastern Snowball (Viburnum); Lilac (Syringa); Rose Of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Coneflower (Echinacea)|
|Care||Provide humus-rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune for shape and structure after flowering.|
|Lore||The flowering cherry is the quintessential symbol of spring and among the few flowering plants in the traditional Japanese tea garden.|
