Prunus x subhirtella ‘Fukubana’


A charming and dainty deciduous tree, suitable for small gardens. Upright vase shape, with broadly ascending branches.


A profusion of dark purplish-red buds open in early-Spring, to reveal semi-double rose pink flowers, with deeply notched petals, that give each bloom a papery rose-bud appearance. Flowers crowd the bare branches


The lightly textured foliage emerges bronze in the Spring, turning bright green from Spring through Summer. Autumn colours are red and yellow.


Tree Size: Approximately 2 - 3 m  above the graft and 4 m wide


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.
