Prunus Kiku Shidare Zakura

Prunus Kikushidare Zakura is a Japanese weeping cherry tree. It is one of the smallest flowering cherry trees, suitable for any small garden. The soft pink blossoms, with their double rows of slightly pointed petals, resemble some varieties of chrysanthemum. They come out in force in April and May, while the young leaves are still small and richly coloured, so that all you can see from a distance is a low dome of flowers that trail right down to the ground. In autumn, the leaves turn into a warm muddle of purple-red and orange. Kiku Shidare Zakura is ideal for the centre-piece of a lawn and looks superb near a pond - the best example that we have seen was planted directly above the pond's artificial waterfall, so that the stream of water emerged from the hanging branches. Children love playing under the canopy when it is in flower and we suggest that you treat yourself on a bright spring day by taking a blanket outside, spreading it underneath your tree, lying down and gazing up at the sky through a roof of cherry blossom. Prunus Kiku Shidare Zakura Cherry trees will reach a height of about 4 metres.

History & uses of Kiku Shidare Zakura Cherry:

This tree is often listed as Cheal's Weeping Cherry in Britain; the two trees are so similar that they can't really be told apart and one is frequently sold as the other, but they are in fact different varieties. The Japanese name means Weeping Chrysanthemum Cherry. Old sources may list is as Prunus serrulata 'Rosea'.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All our large trees are graded by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level. They aren't measured by their height. 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.
