Pandora

  • Prunus Pandora cherry blossom

Pandora is a compact flowering cherry, with a pleasing upright form. It makes a good choice for the smaller garden as a specimen tree, and is also attractive when several are planted together.

The blossom is a delicate light pink and emerges en masse ahead of the leaves, and has a slight and pleasant fragrance.

The leaf colour is one of the points of interest of Pandora. It is essentially a green-bronze colour over the summer, but in early spring the bronze element is more prominent, whilst in autumn the leaves take on strong red and orange tints.

History

Pandora is a form of the Yoshino cherry - Prunus yedoensis. It is thought to have originated in Japan in the 18th century. The species is highly regarded for its compact size and pleasing form, and of course the attractiveness of its blossom.
