The Amanogawa Cherry is a gorgeous fastigiate tree that parades fragrant pale-pink double flowers. The young foliage of this deciduous tree holds a bronze colour, before turning green in summer. Come autumn, they fade to a mellow orange or sharp red, creating a medley of colours.

Due to the narrow and fastigiate nature of the Amanogawa Cherry, the tree is ideal for a small garden, or for row planting or spatial arrangement.

Primrose Guides


Magical Spring Blossoms

For most people the number one attraction of the flowering cherry tree is the short lived but totally spell-binding display of blossoms which, for many, epitomises effervescence and wonder of spring. The Amanogawa cherry is no exception. The narrow nature of the tree means that in the spring almost the entire tree seems to be covered in blossom as the upright stems are festooned in a profusion of pale-pink, semi-double blossom with a gorgeous fragrance.

Fiery Autumn Colour

The spring display of cherry trees always steals the limelight. But this is not a tree for just one season. After the blossom has appeared in spring new foliage appears in a gorgeous bronze colour. This changes again in the autumn when the Amanogawa puts on a stunning, colourful display with fiery orange and red leaves that covers the entire tree giving a long season of interest in the garden and easily rivalling the dramatic spring blossom.

Upright Structure

For those of you who are in search of a traditional cherry tree shape I would reccomend the Prunus Kanzan. But for something slightly different and more compact look no further. The Amanogawa cherry is also known as the Flagpole Cherry Tree and it is easy to see why with its strong, columnar, upright habit. Its fastigiate and narrow nature means that it is the perfect tree for a small garden and can also be used for planting in a row with other Flagpole Cherry Trees.

Planting and Care

Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 4.5 and 7.5 in a sheltered, full sun or partial shade location. Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established. Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Keep a planting distance of at least 6 metres.

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertiliser in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

History Of Cherry Blossom Trees

Cherry blossom trees are a popular ornamental tree which are known for their beauty and grown for their flowers rather than their fruit. However, even though the fruit is too small and tart for humans it is very popular with birds. Most of the varieties of this tree originated in Japan where they have held an important place in Japanese culture for hundreds of years. In fact the cherry blossom tree, which is known as sakura in Japan, is the country’s national flower. There is a custom called ‘hanami’ in Japan which means ‘flower viewing’ where people will gather to look at the flowering trees. Originally it was said to be a custom introduced by the Emperor and members of the Imperial Palace but has since become popular tradition in wider Japanese society. People will gather for a party or picnic under the trees when they are in full bloom.

How to Plant a Potted Tree

A containerised tree can be planted at any point during the year unlike a bare root one. As long as the ground that it is planted in is not frozen or waterlogged the tree should be able to establish itself in any season. When planting your tree make sure that it has been watered and that it is in a suitable position where it can recieve plenty of sunshine and shelter from cold winds.

Customer Reviews
Rating: 5/5

"The Tree is beautiful, the problem is with delivery, when purchased we were told that an email would be sent to us telling us that it was on its way. Its been in the ground for approximately 10 days and we still have not received that email. If we did not have such good neighbours who stepped in to stop the delivery men throwing the tree into the back of the van, the tree would have been ruined"

"I am pleased with the tree but it is a stick at the moment and I am looking forward to seeing it in bloom as I bought it for the blossom. It is only 115 cm high but seems to have plenty of buds ready to burst. I followed the instructions carefully for planting and it appears to be growing already so time will tell whether it turns out to be an excellent specimen!"
