General description of Prunus Okame Cherry trees:
Okame is a short, bushy specimen tree that tends to branch low down. It is very upright when it is young, becoming quite round with maturity. It flowers early, usually in March, after Accolade and before most other flowering cherries. It is covered in single, radiant pink blooms with purple-red centres before its leaves appear. In autumn, the leaves turn into a warm range of colours, from peachy yellow to flushed red.
History & uses of Prunus Okame Cherry
Captain Collingwood Ingram, the great champion of ornamental cherry trees in Britain, bred this hybrid variety from Prunus campanulata and Prunus incisa. It has won both the Award of Garden Merit and an award for its cut flowers from the RHS.
