'Pandora' is a gorgeous spreading tree, which in early spring, is smothered in masses of shell pink flowers - closely followed by attractive bronze-red new leaves, which turn dark green as they mature. In autumn, the foliage colour changes once again, this time turning a vibrant orange before being shed. A popular ornamental cherry, it's ideal for small, urban gardens - or one where space is restricted.

  • 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.
