Daikoku is a traditional Japanese pink blossom tree, with particularly pretty double flowers.

Viewed close-up the individual petals seem to vary in shade from white to darker pink, which produces a very attractive, almost Impressionist effect when seen from a distance.

It is possible that Daikoku has some relation to another well-known Japanese flowering cherry, Pink Perfection, but it is not as well-known.

We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
