Prunus subhirtella ‘Autumnalis’

Autumn Flowering Cherry


An open and wide-spreading habit, ‘Autumnalis’ has a neat and pleasing habit.

A stand out feature tree, with year-round interest. The soft pink star shaped, semi-double blossom appear sporadically from late-Autumn through to Spring.


In Spring, ‘Autumnalis’ will put on a full show, with a profusion of blooms. The pink flowers fade to white with age, and have a frill that adds charm.


The foliage is lightly textured and the small leaves are bright green from Spring through Summer. Autumn foliage is red and orange, and in favorable years, the combination of Autumn colour and delicate bloom is quite striking.


Tree Size: 5 m high and 4 to 5 m wide (20 years)


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.
