Flowering cherry tree Prunus Fragrant Cloud is a beautiful vase-shaped, ornamental cherry tree with clusters of large, semi-double scented flowers. The blossom emerges white and turns to pale pink as it ages to give a froth of very fragrant spring flowers.  This flowering cherry tree also has good autumn colour, with the foliage turning red and orange before it falls.

Prunus Fragrant Cloud is also known as Prunus Shizuka and Prunus serrulata Taka Nioi. Described when it was trialled by the RHS at Wisley as “The best scented cherry”-“Exquisite flowers." Prunus Fragrant Cloud has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden tree.

Although flowering cherry trees are related to the edible cherries (they are all members of the prunus family) these ornamental cherry trees are grown for their spring blossom and good autumn colour. Many also have attractive satiny bark, so the trees remain interesting all through the year.

If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions. Prune Ornamental Cherries in summer to prevent the risk of silver leaf disease.
