The ‘Great White Cherry’ is actually a grafted specimen from the garden of ‘Cherry Ingram, an Englishman who was fascinated with the Japanese Cherry Trees. This is one of the largest and most spectacular versions, with fragrant, large flowers of pure white. The contrast against the coppery tones of the leaves in spring is quite remarkable and sets it apart as a specimen tree, or it is often used in avenue plantings. Deciduous, it will grow to 8 x 6 m.
Suitable for: Avenue or specimen planting.
Features: Large pure white single blossom contrasting with new coppery-red foliage.
Botanical Name: PRUNUS serrulata ‘Tai Haku’
