Prunus  serrulata ‘Pink Perfection’ Flowering Cherry


Large, fully double rose-pink flowers with serrated frilly petals, open from dark pink buds in mid-Spring. Profuse clusters of flowers hang on long stalks. As the name suggests flowers are a spectacular colour. Flowers approximately 2 weeks before ‘Kanzan’


A small deciduous vase shaped tree, spreading with age. The twigs of 'Pink Perfection' hang a little at the ends, giving a very subtle weeping quality.


Young foliage is bronzy, turning dark green in Summer. Autumn colour is yellow to orange.


Tree Size: 4 m high by 5 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.


'Pink Perfection' will benefit from a pruning. With age, 'Pink Perfection' will eventually bare leaves and flowers only at the tip of the branch and should be pruned back shortly after flowering to improve tree shape.
