Prunus Kojo-No-Mai x1

  • Catalogue Code 5140-5521
  • Pack Contents: 1x 3L Shrub

Gorgeous early spring-flowering blossom specially bred to suit small gardens and container displays. It’s a great choice even if you just have a balcony as they’ll grow in larger containers as well as directly in the soil.

The ornamental cherry’s name is as pretty as its blossoms. ‘Kojo-no-mai’ means ‘flight of the butterflies’ in Japanese, which describes its delicate but plentiful flowers perfectly. It’s so good for the garden that the Royal Horticultural Society has given this cultivar an Award of Garden Merit.

  • Spread – up to 2.5m
  • Deciduous tree with fiery autumn colour
  • Habit – Compact and bushy, prune lightly to keep shape (remove only weak and diseased stems)
  • Flowers – March-April

It is an early flowering cherry with free-branching slightly twisted zig-zag branches. This gives it a beautiful and unique silhouette in the winter even when it is has no flowers and leaves. Against a blue winter sky the branches look great.

In the spring, a wealth of white blossoms blushed with pink fill the branches, transforming the tree and attracting pollinators early in the year. As the spring progresses, the leaves unfurl.

At the end of summer, the deciduous leaves turn vibrant oranges and red, extending the seasonal interest, before falling to reveal the attractive zig-zag branches once again in winter.

up to 2.5m
