Prunus serrulata ‘Amanogawa’

Upright Apple Blossom Cherry


With a very upright (fastigiate) and narrow growth habit reminiscent of the poplar, this tree is ideal for narrow spaces in the garden.


Beautiful soft-pink buds open to large pink-white, highly fragranced, single to semi-double flowers. Blossom are held in clusters on the branches, like small bouquets and are borne freely in Spring.


New growth is light bronze, turning dark green in Summer and then shades of yellow in Autumn.

Pruning is required to maintain the erect shape and prevent spindly arching branches. Prune back half the annual growth each winter, cutting above an outward facing bud.


Tree Size: 5 m high and 1.5 m wide (at 20 years)


Available only as a low graft.


Tree Care: For best results plant in full sun in fertile, free draining soil, preferably a friable loam with good aeration.


If the soil is free draining, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, plant the tree so the top of the root ball is level with the soil line and back fill with a soil and compost mixture. If the soil is not free draining, plant the tree in a raised mound of soil and compost mix, to prevent water logging.


Water in well at planting, and water regularly, especially in dry spells. Cherries are shallow rooted and young trees will benefit from being mulched. Apply mulch in a ring around the tree base, keeping clear of the trunk.
