ℹ The award winning 'Amanogawa' Cherry Blossom Tree is a small and charming narrowly columnar variety boasting profuse, semi-double cotton candy pink flowers hugging closely to the erect branches in mid to late spring. Sweetly fragrant, the cherry blossoms stand upright at the side of the branches. Opening from pink buds, the large saucer-shaped blooms, almost 2 in. across count up to 6-15 petals! They fade to almost white as they mature and display a purplish pink heart just before shedding. Emerging bronze-green, the foliage turns to emerald green in Summer before warming up to beautiful and eye catching hues of red and orange in Autumn. Healthy and hardy, it is a very popular tree as a stand alone specimen, privacy screen, driveway border etc. Amanogawa' means 'Heaven's River in Japanese and refers to the galaxy, which is viewed as a river in Japan. Dates back to 1886 and was introduced in Europe around 1916.
