Description
The Japanese Alpine Cherry is a deciduous shrub or small tree that is covered in very pale pink, almost white flowers in spring. Prunus nipponica 'Brilliant' is very hardy and makes an excellent specimen plant in for small to medium gardens. Its leaves emerge a rusty brown colour and slowly change their hue to the traditional green, during autumn they provide a display of reds and oranges as they change one final time before they fall. Perfect for growing in beds or even in a large container. Height: 300cm (118"). Spread: 200cm (79").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant cherry trees in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Choose a final position in full sun.
More Info
Water Prunus trees regularly until fully established. Ornamental cherries require little aftercare. Simply remove any diseased, damaged or crossing shoots to maintain a healthy framework. When pruning cherries it is preferable to wait until midsummer to avoid the risk of ‘silver leaf’ infection. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stem.
