Prunus serrulata 'Rebecca,' commonly known as the Rebecca Cherry or Japanese Flowering Cherry, is a delightful ornamental tree that hails from the Prunus genus within the Rosaceae family. This cultivar is celebrated for its striking aesthetic appeal, making it a popular choice in gardens, parks, and urban landscapes across the United Kingdom.

Rebecca Cherry is renowned for its abundant and breathtaking springtime display of delicate, semi-double, pink blossoms. These exquisite flowers, with their pale to deep pink hues, create a captivating spectacle that signifies the arrival of spring. The profusion of blossoms adorns the tree's gracefully arching branches, enveloping it in a cloud of colour and fragrance. The flowers also attract pollinators, enhancing the ecological value of the tree.

The foliage of Prunus serrulata 'Rebecca' consists of elliptical leaves that start as bronze or coppery when they emerge in spring, gradually maturing to dark green in summer. This transition adds an extra layer of visual interest to the tree throughout the growing season. In Autumn, the leaves turn shades of red and bronze before eventually falling, providing another season of visual appeal.

This cherry tree typically reaches a height of 20-30 feet (6-9 meters) with a similar spread, creating an elegant and moderately-sized specimen suitable for various landscaping needs. It has an upright, vase-like shape that adds structure and character to outdoor spaces.

Prunus serrulata 'Rebecca' thrives in well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to a wide range of garden conditions. It is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only regular pruning to maintain its shape and remove dead or diseased branches.
