Cherry 'Amanogawa'

Prunus, Ornamental Cherry, Flagpole Cherry Tree

Hardy Tree

Also known as the Flagpole Cherry Tree, this architectural ornamental cherry has an upright, columnar habit making it ideal for small gardens! Clusters of slightly fragrant, soft pink-white blossoms simply smother the branches in late spring and are highly attractive to bees. Come autumn, the leaves of this RHS AGM variety turn to fiery shades of yellow, orange and red giving a long season of interest in the garden. Cherry 'Amanogawa' makes a fantastic low-maintenance addition to sunny borders, where it can be grown as a specimen tree or focal point. Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 4m (13').

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

April, May
Position:

    • 1 bareroot plant

Plant cherry trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant ornamental cherry trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.

Ornamental cherry trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
