Cultivar'Kanzan'

Prunus 'Kanzan' (syn. Kwanzan or Sekiyama) is a flowering cherry cultivar. It is a deciduous tree that grows to between 8 and 12 metres (25 and 40 ft) high with an 8-metre (25 ft) spread. Young trees have a vase-shaped habit that becomes more spreading into maturity. In spring they produce red buds, opening to 5-centimetre (2 in) diameter deep-pink double flowers.[1][2] The trees, which are usually propagated by chip budding or grafting, prefer a well-drained location in full sun.[1][3]
