Prunus Kanzan also known as Pink Cherry Blossom. This is favourite pink flowering cherry blossom tree and the most popular variety that you will see planted throughout the countryside. Prunus Kanzan is an ornamental tree that will flower profusely during Spring with the flowers making an amazing carpet once they fall.
I would recommend planting the tree away from the house and or walls and footpaths as the roots of the Prunus Kanzan have been known to travel. It likes to be planted in full sun, with well drained soil and they are really hardy.
They can be pruned, but if left unpruned, they will grow to 6 metres, approx. 20 feet in height.
