Prunus campanulata

Taiwan or Formosa Cherry


A small deciduous tree with masses of magenta, bell-shaped flowers in early Spring. It makes a charming display. Perfect for small gardens and narrow spaces.


Will also grow in warmer areas where traditional cherries do not thrive.


A small vase shaped tree. Leaves are dark green in Summer, turning red in Autumn.


Tree Size: 4 -7 m high by 3 m wide (depending on growth conditions)


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.
