Beniyutaka Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree
Semi-double, disc-shaped flowers which are a unique sugar pink colour with a distinctive dark central eye mark out Beniyutaka (Prunus 'Beni-yutaka') as something special amongst the many japanese flowering cherry varieties. As an added bonus, dramatic autumn colours of rich red-crimson are a real focus of interest. A spectacular robust and worthy tree.
Beniyutaka is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.4 metres in a 10-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock.
We usually have them in 2 options:
150-180cm Half Standard 2-3 years old
180-240cm Half Standard 2-3 years old
A medium sized tree, so expect a height of up to 6 metres (20 foot) after 10 years.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Beniyutaka Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree
The tree we ordered arrived safely today. I just wanted to say we were very pleased with the size and quality of the tree which was nicely proportioned with good branching to give a good overall shape. Very happy with this tree! Many thanks. Paul 0218
Hello Alan, one tree arrived on Wednesday and the other two on Thursday, which was great as I was on site and planted them on Friday morning. All three looked like lovely specimens, well grown and undamaged by transit. I couldn't have picked better myself. The couriers were helpful and careful so I'd give you an 8 or 9 out of 10! (like to leave room for improvement) As we will be working at this garden again in the spring I'll be able to check they're growing well. Thank you for a great service. Happy for you to use this as a testimonial. Best wishes Yvonne Say 0114

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
Fruit On Ornamental Cherry Trees
If any fruits are formed, they will be small, inedible and barely noticeable.
Cheaper Ornamental Cherry Trees
There are cheaper cherry trees out there but you need to make sure that they are the same height and age, VAT and delivery is included in the display price, comes with a FREE TREE WARRANTY, certified virus free, UK grown and not cheaper EU imports used to better weather. A less expensive tree that dies is not cheaper.
If you get all that, let us know, we will try to price match.
