Prunus x subhirtella ‘Autumnalis’ is an ornamental tree known for is unique blooming behaviour. Native to Japan and introduced to Britain at the beginning of the 20th century, the winter-flowering Cherry is highly regarded for its ability to produce delicate blooms during the winter months.
Unlike most cherries, which bloom in spring, this cultivar surprises with its ability to produce flowers during autumn and winter, hence its common name, winter-flowering Cherry. Its blossoms emerge in small clusters and appear from pink buds. Petals are small, light pink and are double flowered.
In addition to its remarkable flowering habit, the winter-flowering cherry offers beautiful autumn foliage, with captivating shades of yellows, orange and reds. Leaves are sharply toothed and oval in shape.
