Cherry 'Kojo-no-mai'

Prunus incisa, Ornamental Cherry

Hardy Shrub

This popular Fuji Cherry bursts into life in early spring when much of the garden is still dormant, with a flamboyant show of delicate white blossoms tinted with pink. The pretty blooms are highly attractive to bees and an important source of early nectar. Unlike the more familiar cherry trees Cherry 'Kojo-no-mai' forms a neat, compact shrub which is ideal for small or low-maintenance gardens. Come autumn, the leaves of this RHS AGM variety turn to fiery shades of orange and red giving a long season of interest. Grow Prunus 'Kojo-no-mai' in a shrub border alongside early spring bulbs for a show-stopping spring display. Height and spread: 2.5m (8').

cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, low maintenance garden, specimen plant

full sun
    • 1 x 7cm potted cherry plant

Pot up Prunus incisa 'Kojo-no-mai' plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise Prunus plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting them outdoors in well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole.

Feed and water cherry trees regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Prunus incisa plants require only occasional attention. Pruning of Fuji cherries is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in mid-summer. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
