Beni-yutaka is a Japanese flowering cherry with solid pink blossom. The flowers are semi-double, with a pronounced central eye, and are distinctly fragrant on sunny spring mornings.
In autumn the leaves take on fiery red hues.
Beni-yutaka is one of a great number of flowering cherries developed by cherry enthusiast Masatoshi Asari in Hokkaido, the northernmost main island of Japan - known collectively as Matsumae cherries. It was released in the 1960s.
