This is one of the most popular double-flowering cherry trees available. In spring the tree is laden with large double, deep pink flowers shortly before the bronze foliage appears, transitioning to a rich dark green. In autumn these dark green leaves turn bronzy orange before they fall. 'Kanzan' is a wonderful multi-season tree for a medium-sized garden, it's perfect for avenue planting - or as a specimen tree in the lawn.

  • 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.
