Design Ideas This is the quintessential cherry for the Japanese garden, but it's equally as well suited to the western traditional landscape. Plant where it's full form can be appreciated without distractions. Beautiful in a lawn or amidst a sea of muted groundcover where it becomes focal in early spring, or as soft summer breezes cause its tresses to gently sway. A favorite for overhanging water gardens and ponds. Use close to outdoor living spaces and in foundation planting where beautiful red bark may be appreciated up close in all seasons.
Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Green
