Prunus subhirtella ‘Winter Sun’

Winter Flowering Winter Cherry


A highly ornamental tree, that will add year-round interest.  From mid-Winter through to early Spring, Winter Sun will put on a display of soft pink, single flowers.


The pendulous branches cascade gracefully and are a real feature in Japanese inspired gardens and are useful in small gardens.


Growth Habit: Horizontal to pendulous


Only available for local pick up


Tree Size:

Available as a standard graft at either 1.5 m or 1.8 m in height.

Height 2 - 2.5 meter and 3 - 5 meters 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.
