Prunus subhirtella

Prunus subhirtella (Prunus × subhirtella) sometimes also called Spring cherry, Higan cherry, or Rosebud cherry[1] is a small deciduous flowering tree originating in Japan, but unknown in the wild. It is probably of hybrid origin between Prunus incisa and Prunus spachiana.[citation needed]

Fruit and flowers[edit]

P. subhirtella bears white to pink flowers which may emerge intermittently from autumn through to spring, and small black fruit.[2]

Ornamental use[edit]

Several garden forms are known. The variety 'Jugatsu-zakura' (incorrectly known as Prunus × subhirtella 'Autumnalis')[3] is widely grown for its propensity to flower during mild winter weather.[2]

The leaves of P. subhirtella have some garden value for their autumn colour.[2] The cultivar P. × subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea' has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[4]
