STYLE
Design Ideas Flowering Cherry are certainly a part of the Asian garden palette, but they are just as appropriate for traditional beds and borders. Planted as single accents against darker background evergreens, its beautiful bark and graceful form are perfect for the romantic cottage or country garden. This upright Cherry works well as a street tree, front-yard showpiece, lining driveway edges in cooler climates or as a smaller shade tree in city gardens. Plant as a single specimen, in pairs at entries and gateways and in groves to compound their influence.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Boxwood (Buxus); Lilac (Syringa); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Rose Of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); Coneflower (Echinacea)
CARE
Care Provide humus-rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune for shape and structure after flowering.
HISTORY
Lore Flowering cherry trees are the very embodiment of all spring blossoms in the Japanese tea garden.
