Japanese Flowering Cherry - Shimidsu Sakura
This is a Semi upright tree, not a true weeper. The young branches have an upright spreading growth habit, which becomes flatter and more pendulous as the tree matures. In mid Spring, large double blossoms are produced that are pink in bud and fade to white as they open. Hanging in clusters under the branches, they give a very attractive display. Foliage is green changing to yellow, orange and reds during Autumn.
