The Kanzan Cherry is native to Japan, China and Korea and is a very popular variety that is widely planted. This exquisite tree produces an abundance of dark pink, densely filled blossom, which flower from deep red buds in May. As a young tree it is vase-shaped, with the spread widening with age. The large leaves appear red at first, and slightly darken before becoming a radiant green by summer. In autumn the foliage turns a coppery-yellow before falling. The RHS has given this tree an Award of Merit.
