Prunus ‘Kojo No Mai’


A slow growing, dwarf cherry with a distinctive zig-zag growth habit and year-round interest, this small ornamental cherry is exquisite and will suit any garden.


An abundance of small and delicate, pale-pink single blooms in early Spring, which fade to blush white. 


Leaves are small, and dark-green through Summer, becoming a stunning red in Autumn.


In Winter, Kojo No Mai has an architectural presence, as the zig-zag habit of the branches can be fully appreciated. 


The compact and slow growth make ‘Kojo No Mai’ suitable for large containers, rockeries, Japanese style gardens, bonsai and small gardens,


Due to the growth habit and delicate nature of this tree, it will be shipped in a box, seperate to any other trees purchased. Shipping fees will be calculated manually, depending on pruning. Please contact me at to order this special tree.


If you require a particular graft height for bonsai, please email me at and we will be happy to graft to order.


Tree Size: 2 m high by 2 m wide (at 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.
