Fragrant Cloud Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree Options Explained
125-150cm : 5-9 Litre 2-3 year, usually feathered.

180-240cm : 12-15 Litre 2-4 year half standard
A dramatic, fast-growing Japanese flowering cherry variety, Fragrant Cloud (Prunus 'Shizuka;) has a spreading slightly ascending habit. The huge clusters of large, white, semi-double flowers are borne in masses on the tree during May and turn a delightful pinkish as they age. The flowers are also slightly scented, which is unusual for a flowering cherry. As an added bonus, Autumn sees the leaves turn an attractive orange before shedding.
A medium height tree, so expect a height of up to 6 metres (20 foot) after 10 years.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Fragrant Cloud Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree
No problems at all the tree was delivered on the day you told me way back in March. That in itself is an achievment most companies today seem to have a problem with next week. The Nightfreight driver did an excellent job as our postcode although corrrect when used with a sat nav takes you to the wrong place. The tree is an excellent specimen. I just hope I live long enough to see it reach maturity. Many thanks Geoff Rafferty 0812

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.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
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 unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
Fruit On Ornamental Cherry Trees
If any fruits are formed, they will be small, inedible and barely noticeable.
