Yamadei is form of Prunus incisa with a spreading habit and featuring a mass of bright white spring blossom.  The flowers have a distinctive bell-like shape (as if they have not opened up fully).

In autumn the leaves take on orange and red hues.

Being relatively small and slow-growing, Yamadei is ideal as a dwarf "top worked" tree, in a planter as a patio feature.

This variety of Prunus incisa (the Fuji cherry) was found in the early 20th century near Mount Fuji in Japan. It differs from others of this species in that the flowers do not have red centres, and the petals remain partially closed, creating the bell-like effect.
