Round-headed deciduous tree. Tapering, elliptic deep green leaves which are bronze-red when young and turn brilliant orange and red in early autumn. Single bowl-shaped, pale pink flowers in spring, followed by ovoid, glossy crimson-red fruit. One of the loveliest flowering cherries.

Any reasonable, well drained soil in sun.
If required, prune in summer.

A high value tree, with both spring blossom and good autumn colour.
