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.

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.

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).
