Prunus ‘Fragrant Cloud’ is a medium-sized, vase-shaped, deciduous flowering cherry tree of spreading habit with dark green leaves, emerging bronze, and turning vivid orange and red in autumn. Large, extremely fragrant, semi-double, white to pale pink flowers bloom in spring. Prunus ‘Fragrant Cloud’ prefers moderately fertile, moist, and well-drained soils, but is adaptable to a wide range of soils, as long as they are well-drained. It doesn’t like too wet, shallow, and chalky soils. It thrives in full sun, but needs to be sheltered. Late frosts may damage the flower buds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Cherry 'Shizuka' is a lovely decorative cherry tree, grown for its fragrant, pink flowers and beautiful autumn foliage. It’s a tough tree, tolerant of air pollution, therefore, excellent for urban conditions. Great as a specimen tree in cottage and informal gardens. Lovely when planted in groups and suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
