Prunus serrulata ‘Prentice Dancer’


Soft pink buds open to ruffled semi-double white flowers, which appear delicate against the bare branches and newly unfurling leaves in early-Spring.

Flowers will appear before Yoshino.

For a cherry blossom tree, Prentice Dancer is very long flowering.


A vigorous growing, upright vase shape.

Dark green foliage through Summer, which turns to shades of orange and red in Autumn.


Tree Size: 5 m high and 4 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.
