'Ivensii' is a beautiful and vigorous, weeping tree, perfect for a medium-sized garden. Its graceful sweeping shape and cascading form, reminiscent of falling snow, is much admired. In early spring, the tree will be adorned with pure white blossoms, while in autumn, the ovate-shaped leaves will transform into a fiery display of orange and yellow colours. Weeping with horizontal main branches and drooping slender branchlets, this Yoshino cherry tree will make a lovely single specimen focal point and attract plenty of pollinators with its delicately almond-scented flowers.

  • Garden care:
    When planting your ornamental cherry, prepare a hole up to three times the diameter of its root system. Fork over the base of the pit in readiness, incorporating plenty of organic matter into the backfill and planting hole. Avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil, trees should be planted out as they arrive. If you've ordered a bare root tree, soak the roots in a bucket of water for half an hour prior to planting, or if this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily, covering their roots with soil, or potted up. Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Lightly prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker, to retain an open shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
