Prunus Chocolate Ice

Prunus 'Chocolate Ice'

Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree

In April-May, the large, showy flowers open blush white against the newly emerged red tinted, chocolate brown foliage, creating a bold and eye-catching contrast. The foliage will gradually fade to dark-green and then vivid shades of orange and red appear in the Autumn. Growing to just 4 x 4 metres in 20 years, Prunus Chocolate Ice is ideal for those with limited space. This flowering cherry tree is suited to most positions, including urban areas, as it is pollution tolerant but it is best to avoid very wet or chalky shallow soils. Our single stem, pot grown Japanese Flowering Cherry trees can be planted at any time of the year. Although it is possible to leave your Chocolate Ice Flowering Cherry tree to its own devices, if you prune it for the first few years it will create a more balanced branch framework.
