Autumn Flowering Higan CherryPrunus subhirtella
This spectacular, fast-growing flowering cherry tree is a landscape stand-out with seasonal interest. It is famous for its ability to produce lovely pink buds and white flowers off and on during a warm autumn season and then fully flower in the spring. In addition to the sporadic fall bloom, the foliage turns bronze, yellow, gold or deep-red tinged to contribute to the beauty of the season. And attractive bark adds winter interest.
All of this combined with the fact that the tree is more cold-hardy, heat- and stress-tolerant and long-lived than other ornamental cherry trees makes the autumn flowering Higan cherry a versatile ornamental choice.
