Prunus x yedoensis ‘Yoshino’

Tokyo Cherry


One of the earliest cherries to flower, Yoshino is a real traffic stopper with its floral display. On an established tree, the bare branches will be smothered with thousands of soft, pale-pink to white, single blossoms that are a real sight to behold! Flowers are almond scented.


Gracefully spreading, broadly rounded tree. 


The serrated leaves are dark green in Summer, turning a reddish-bronze to orange in Autumn.


Tree Size: 5 m high and 7 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.
