Prunus Ukon

Prunus Ukon Cherry is one of the only yellow flowering cherry blossom trees. The flowers are creamy white with a faint yellow tint. Ukon cherries are not tall, but they are spreading, with a canopy up to 10 metres across. The buds are pink and open into its famous semi-double flowers of gentle, creamy yellow. The blossom appears at the same time as the young leaves, which are bronze, turning through green in summer to a glorious dark red in autumn. Ukon cherries look best when they are planted in front of a green backdrop: a yew hedge is perfect. They can reach a height of about 6-8 metres.

History & uses of Prunus Ukon: 

Ukon means "yellowish" in Japanese, and it is the yellow flowers which make Ukon cherries so remarkable as a cherry tree with yellow flowers has long been sought after by gardeners and this variety is the best there is. It was introduced to Britain in 1905 and holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All our standards,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.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
