Prunus Subhirtella Autumnalis Rosea


Prunus Subhirtella Autumnalis Rosea (Prunus Subhirtella Autumnalis Rosea)

If this tree is still blossoming on April 1st, it will enter it's fifth month of flowering! I couldn't garden without this one now...it's a must! doesn't get too big, and has a lovely spreading/slightly arching habit as it matures.

I remember my first winter in London. How surprised I was to see it flowering in December, lol.

Thanks both. Kasy, it needs a mild winter to flower in december here....and this year we had just that. It flowered very sparsely all through dec, jan and feb and now it is full-on!

Isn't it amazing how different the seasons are Paul? In summer I can't imagine how it will be in winter and in winter I can't believe it will ever be summer again! :))

I'll have to look out for this one . Its lovely. Doesn't the blossom get blown off in strong winds like the other prunus varieties?

Not that I have ever really noticed Rose...it will always get blown away when it is nearly over of course....but this one seems to hang on to it's blossoms well enough.

We get very strong westerlies here and as we are on a hill , the hedge doesn't always protect everything so I haven't bothered to buy one of these, but I'm definitely going to find one of these.

Yup, well we have strong westerlies too. We are up a hill and behind us is nothing but open fields to the North and N.West. The Sidlaw hills do give us a little shelter from snow, but Carnoustie is a windy little place for sure. In fact, the field first behind the estate often dumps a ton or two of soil on the road when it's windy. We have very sandy soil you see and it just blows all over the roads. All the white seals on our windows are red with the sand that blew on to them just after they were built! In fact the tree is a bit 'leaning' to one side from the wind, the leader growing towards the east, but then they do tend to have a spreading and slightly arching habit when they mature...not at all like the standard cherry blossom tree you see in the parks. Much more elegant, you'll like it!

Beautiful against the blue sky.....

I hope I can find it Karen. We are also on sandy soil, but its had loads of manure over the years. We're lucky in the fact that we live in the middle of allotments where there is always a good supply of it.
