Autumn Flowering Cherry

It is such a beautiful day today at the nursery.  We have been swamped with customers and calls and everyone is in a hurry.  Perhaps, it is because the weather forecast hints of cold weather next week.  

While out tagging trees for an order shipping tomorrow, I saw this wonderful Autumn Flowering Cherry.  The clusters of blush pink flowers look so beautiful against the blue sky.

Autumn Flowering Higan Cherry, Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis', actually flowers heavily in the spring with an occasional lighter flowering during a warm period in the fall.  The green summer leaves were orange and bronze earlier this fall.  It is a fast growing tree that will mature 30 x 30'.

  2. Joel, I love your blog and photos. Thanks for writing. I can't wait to see what you post next! Susan
