The Prunus 'Umineko', a stunning addition to any garden landscape, renowned for its captivating beauty and delicate elegance. Originating from Japan, this ornamental cherry tree, also known as 'Sea Breeze', is cherished for its abundant clusters of pure white blossoms that herald the arrival of spring in a spectacular fashion.

The Prunus 'Umineko' belongs to the esteemed family of flowering cherries, prized for their graceful form and enchanting floral displays. It typically grows to a modest height of around 4-6 meters, making it suitable for gardens of varying sizes. Its compact size makes it an ideal choice for both urban gardens and larger landscapes, where it can serve as a focal point or be planted in clusters for a breathtaking visual impact.

In early spring, before the tree's leaves unfurl, delicate buds burst into a profusion of fragrant, snow-white flowers. These blossoms, borne in clusters along the branches, create a mesmerizing spectacle that attracts pollinators and admirers alike. The Prunus 'Umineko' is a beacon of hope and renewal, symbolizing the rejuvenation of nature after the long winter months.

Following the floral extravaganza, the tree's glossy green foliage emerges, providing a lush backdrop for the remainder of the growing season. In autumn, the leaves transition to vibrant hues of yellow and orange, casting a warm glow across the landscape before gracefully descending.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Prunus 'Umineko' offers a low-maintenance addition to the garden, requiring little more than regular watering and occasional pruning to maintain its shape. It thrives in well-drained soil and prefers a sunny to partially shaded position, although it can tolerate some shade.

Whether planted as a solitary specimen, in a mixed border, or as part of a Japanese-inspired garden, the Prunus 'Umineko' never fails to captivate with its timeless beauty and serene presence. Bring the enchantment of spring to your garden with this exquisite flowering cherry tree, and enjoy its ethereal charm for years to come.

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).
