Prunus Shirofugen: Bareroot Shirofugen / Fugenzo Cherry Trees in Standard Sizes

Prunus Shirofugen is a beautiful, spreading tree that is wider than it is tall when mature, with a distinctive flat canopy. In our range, the Shirofugen Cherry is the latest to come into bloom, with flowers that sometimes last into June. The large, double, fragrant white blossom open from pink buds and darken into pink again just before they fall. These contrast very well against the rich, copper coloured young leaves.
Shirofugen can reach a height of about 8-10 metres.

Delivery season: Shirofugen Cherry trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: To 8-10m
  • Soil: Any decently well drained
  • Use: Specimen
  • Colour: Pink and white flowers in May to June
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Shirofugen Trees

Suitable for any well drained soil, we recommend planting in full sun.

Did You Know?

Shirofugen means "white god" in Japanese according to the garden books, but according to online translators, it means "white addendum". Either way, it doesn't seem to be the tree's name in Japan, which is probably Fugenzo: the confusion deepens because there is another tree that we call Fugenzo in the West, which is probably called Kofugen in Japan and is the parent of Shirofugen. But maybe all that is Chinese whispers: the RHS says Shirofugen and Fugenzo are the same.
It was bred about 500 years ago, and introduced to Britain around the start of the 20th century.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
