General tree description
Prunus 'Ichiyo' is a small, spreading tree up to 8 metres in height and breadth, with ascending main branches. Its young leaves are pale brown or light bronze, soon becoming green, and turning red and orange in autumn. The flowers are double (up to 25 petals), 4.75cm across and pale pink, eventually fading to white. They are borne in drooping, long-stalked clusters in mid spring. 'Ichiyo' means 'one-leaf' in Japanese, a reference to a leaf-like pistil in the centre of the flower.
