General tree description

Prunus x yedoensis 'Perpendens' is a cultivar of the hybrid Yoshino cherry, Prunus x yedoensis, and is a weeping dome-shaped tree, growing to around 3 metres tall and broad. It has clusters of fragrant, white flowers in early spring, before the leaves emerge. The leaves are 5 to 15cm long and 5 to 8cm broad, with serrated edges, slightly bronze in colour when young, becoming dark green by summer. In autumn they turn yellow-gold. The fruits are small, round cherries, 8 to 10mm in diameter, black when mature.
