Prunus Shirofugen
Shrofugen is identifiable by its pink buds which engulf the branches in spring, opening up into fragranced, large double white blossoms which change to pink as they age. The young bronze-coppery leaves turn to dark green in summer and then to copper red in autumn. Shirofugen has an attractive spreading habit and its umbrella-like canopy make this a well-liked and popular Japanese flowering cherry tree.

When compared to many other flowering Cherry trees, The Shirofugen is considered a fast grower which is ideal for the impatient gardeners out there. Another plus point with this Cherry tree is that it is one of the latest and longest to flower so if you have a garden with other flowering Cherry trees then this will extend the visual pleasure for you.

As with most things as they age, the Shirofugen may start to droop or arch downwards as it gets older.

This stunningly beautiful white flowering cherry tree is similar to Shirotae (only growing to 6m or 20ft) at the ten-year point. It may go on to grow some more but this is purely down to weather and local soil conditions. Manual pruning will, of course, keep the ultimate height down but if you want to let it grow then pruning is not needed unless you want to take out a few branches here and there to stimulate new growth.

Shirofugen is supplied at a height of between 1.5m (5ft) to 1.7m (5ft 6in) and in a 12L container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

If you are interested in how the Shirofugen got to Europe then you need to look up Ernest Henry Wilson. An avid plant explorer responsible for bringing back over 60 forms of flowering cherry and many more. Information on him can be found on Wikepedia under Ernest Henry Wilson 15 February 1876 - 15 October 1930. Ironically, he was killed in a road traffic accident aged 54.

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
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.
