Ascending branches are a feature of this tree as are the young bronze leaves that turn green. Ichiyo flowering cherry tree (Prunus 'Ichiyo') is appealing in that it carries long-lasting double shell-pink flowers with an attractive frilled appearance. The flowers themselves are borne on pretty long stalks. It was features such as these that the RHS gave it the Award Of Garden Merit (AGM) and because there was no bribery scandal in the papers or other news outlets, we think it probably got it deservedly so.
Expect the flowers to make an appearance April to May time but if they are female then they might be running late!
A medium height tree, so expect a height of up to 8 metres after 10 years with a similar sized spread (sounds like some middle aged men we know on the TV in that their height is similar to their middle). Prune Ichiyo flowering cherry trees in mid Summer to avoid the risk of Silver Leaf disease.

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
