Growing Details

Common Name: Japanese Cherry
Genus: Prunus
Species: serrulata
Cultivar: 'Kanzan'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Boggy
Height: 8 - 12m
Spread: 6 - 8m


The leaves are arranged alternately, simple, ovate-lanceolate, 5-13 cm long and 2.5-6.5 cm broad, with a short petiole and a serrate or doubly serrate margin. At the end of autumn, the green leaves turn yellow, red or crimson. The flowers are produced in racemose clusters of two to five together at nodes on short spurs in spring at the same time as the new leaves appear; they are white to pink, with five petals in the wild type tree. 

As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid-June onwards. This is not a disease, it is just a growth cycle with this type of tree.

    Received my beautiful tree today, exceptionally well packaged and looked after. Wasn’t dehydrated on arrival, arrived three days after despatch and went straight into the ground. Tall and already flowering, I can’t wait for it to take root and blossom! Very pleased with height, condition and delivery.
