Known for its mass of almond scented white flowers in early spring, as the seasons progress, it changes from the warming orange of summer to the type of Autumn red that typifies the romance of the season. The Yoshino Cherry is used extensively in street and garden plantings throughout Southland and Canterbury, a testament to its hardy nature and ability to cope well in both dry and wet climates. Deciduous, it will grow to 5 x 4m and has a compact vase to spreading form. It just might be our favourite cherry.
Suitable for: Avenue or specimen planting.
