An ornamental cherry to grace smaller gardens with its developing umbrella-shaped form and a profusion of enchanting, pure white bell-shaped flowers. These delicate blooms emerge from green buds and may bear small, dark red fruits from late summer. The serrated foliage of 'Yamadei', initially pale green, transforms into a vibrant palette of orange and red come autumn. Compact and relatively slow-growing, it thrives best in conditions that avoid extremes of wet or dry soils.

  • 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.
