Design IdeasFlowering 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.
