Prunus Okame Cherry Trees

Prunus Okame Cherry trees flower early, with red and pink blossom. 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 which show before its leaves appear. In autumn, the leaves turn into a warm range of colours, from peachy yellow to flushed red. Prunus Okame Cherry trees can reach a height of about 5-10 metres.

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.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, including our cherry trees, are graded by their girth in centimetres - taken 1 metre above ground level. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres. In any variety an 8/10 is taller than a 6/8 but the heights between different varieties can vary hugely. So standard trees are roughly 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall.
