A long-lived ornamental cherry, award-winning Prunus pendula f. ascendens 'Rosea' is a small deciduous tree, with a spreading to slightly erect form, becoming somewhat umbrella-shaped with age. Opening from red buds, an abundance of small, single, shell-pink flowers appear in mid spring before the leaves emerge. Held in clusters of 3-5 blooms, the cherry blossoms fade to almost white towards the end of the flowering. This ornamental cherry tree lives to a long age. Some specimens are reported to be three to four hundred years old. A spectacular and elegant ornamental cherry tree for the landscape.

  • Grows vigorously up to 15-25 ft. tall and wide (4-8 m).
  • Performs best in full sun in moist, relatively fertile, well-drained soils.
  • Perfect choice as a single specimen plant
  • Watch for caterpillars, leaf-mining moths, bullfinches, silver leaf, bacterial canker and blossom wilt.
