Flowering Cherry 'Kojo-No-Mai', Cherry 'Kojo-No-Mai'


A charming dwarf flowering cherry, award-winning Prunus incisa 'Kojo-No-Mai' is a slow-growing, compact deciduous shrub with wonderful zig-zag branches boasting small but profuse, single flowers in early spring. Opening from crimson buds, the delicate pale pink, paper-thin blossoms fade to blush white as they mature. Born in abundance along the bare branches, they provide a breathtaking floral display. As the flowers wane, the foliage of lance-shaped leaves emerge, pale green at first, then turning darker with age before coloring brilliantly in the fall. Free-flowering, with 2 seasons of interest and a great architectural presence, 'Kojo-No-Mai' is an exquisite variety of the Fuji cherry that is excellent for small gardens, rock gardens or containers.
