Prunus 'Okame', Taiwan Cherry 'Okame', is a small, deciduous tree of upright, vase-shaped habit, but becomes more rounded as it matures. Simple, ovate, green leaves turn bronze-red and orange in autumn. Mildly scented, 5-petal, rosy-pink flowers with red calyces bloom in profusion in early spring on bare branches before the leaves emerge, creating a beautiful display. Attractive to birds and bees. Prunus 'Okame' grows best in moderately fertile, moist, and well-drained soil, but is adaptable to a wide range of soils, as long as they are well-drained. It thrives in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade. It is resistant to heat and cold. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. May suffer from a large number of pests and diseases. Cherry 'Okame' is a beautiful ornamental tree, perfect for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Stunning as a specimen plant or planted in small groups. Great choice for public areas, streets or parks.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
