Kwanzan On Serrula Flowering Cherry

Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan'

This flowering cherry is grafted with paperbark cherry as the interstem, resulting in a trunk with shiny mahogany red bark that peels as it ages. Superb lawn tree that puts on an early season show with clusters of large, double deep pink blooms backed by bronze-red new growth. Upright, vase-shaped branching habit. Deciduous.
