Ascendens Rosea

Prunus pendula
Ascendens Rosea has received the RHS Award of Garden MeritAscendens Rosea is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

Ascendens Rosea is one of the best forms of Prunus pendula. Although others of this species often have a weeping form, Ascendens Rosea has a graceful upright form - reminscent of a silver birch.

The blossom is borne in great profusion and is a lovely rose-white colour.

The tree will reach about 4m after 10 years or so.
