A spectacular, modest sized ornamental cherry tree whose upright form emerges cloaked in bronze-tinged foliage, then becomes blanketed with hundreds of petite, yet prolifically packed flowers along the slender branches in mid to late spring. The leaves mature to deep green in summer, providing continued seasonal interest and shade. Named for a historic Japanese feudal lord, ‘Asano' tolerates most soils, and is easily maintained at a smaller size through pruning. For optimal autumn colour and the fullest floral display, plant in full sun.

  • 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 ‘goblet' shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
