Prunus 'Kanzan' (Japanese Flowering Cherry) - 45L Standard 14-16cm Girth

This beautiful plant is a stunning example of the way the seasons change deciduous trees. The leaves of this flowering plant are a gorgeous bronze when young, before turning green in spring and summer. Come autumn, they fade to a mellow orange, creating a medley of colours. Combined with the blousey double flowers, which are an elegantly rich purple-tinged pink, this tree will add a burst of colour to your garden. This tree is hardy and easy to look after and a great choice if you are looking to add some oriental ornateness to your garden.

This particular tree is one from our mature ornamental tree range. If you want a substantial flowering cherry in your garden, but don't want to have to wait too long for it to grow, then this is a great option for you. This tree is already verging on 3 meters in height and has a crown of multiple, good sized branches already developed. Pictured in early spring, you can see buds already formed which will produce a good display of blossom this year and a display that will grow and grow over the years.

As a seven year old tree, this cherry already has a good root base established. However, the tree will require some attention for the first year as it recovers from the transplant shock, so regular watering is advised. Strong growth will resume after this period, and you should see your tree edging towards an impressive stature over the next 2-3 years.

Q:Does Height Really Matter?

A: Not As Much As You Might Think...
One stand out specification that customers often use to judge the value of a tree is the height. So should height directly correlate with the price of a tree? No, not necessarily.
To an extent the height of a tree can give you a good indication of its maturity but you must not forget: To grow a productive, well shaped, healthy tree you must prune it back regularly, especially when young.
Our trees often grow up to 2m in the fields before we prune them back and package them ready to send out. This pruning encourages the tree to grow more, stronger branches and ensures there is a good balance between the root size and top growth. This ensures that your tree puts energy into establishing a healthy root base instead of supporting top growth, providing a better foundation for your tree in the future.
So, in summary: Dont let the extra 10/20cm you may find elsewhere sway you. You are likely to be paying extra for the delivery costs and, if you want a healthy tree in the long run, youre going to have to chop it off anyway!

Caring and Maintenance

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.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 6m minimum

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.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
