Prunus Hanagasa is a superb modern Japanese blossom tree, featuring a cascade of light pink blossom. The double flowers have green centres, and are larger than most. They hang in long-stemmed clusters, creating a dramatic effect.
The leaves appear ahead of the blossom, and are initially a dark copper bronze colour, becoming green over the summer and then yellow in the autumn.
The tree grows with a broad spreading habit, and for this reason is sometimes known as Pink Parasol.
