Prunus incisa 'The Bride' Tree

Fuji Cherry Trees
  • From £64.99 (ex VAT)

Prunus incisa 'The Bride' creates an abundance of white flowers that adorn the naked branches of this dense and shrubby small Fuji Cherry tree. In March-April, pale pink buds open to large white, single flowers that display contrasting bright red flower anthers. Delicate serrated foliage is mid-green before turning flaming shades of red and orange in autumn.

Ideal for small gardens, Prunus incisa 'The Bride' will reach an estimated height and spread of 4 x 4 metres in 20 years, forming an attractive rounded, slightly spreading shape. This Fuji Cherry tree will grow well in all but extreme conditions such as very wet or very dry soils.

Nigel's Nursery Notes: 'The Bride' is a popular choice to give as a wedding gift and the top grafted forms are ideal for growing in a patio pot.

Planting Advice For Prunus incisa The Bride Trees

Our pot grown The Bride Fuji Cherry trees can be planted at any time of year. Choose a location away from strong winds to protect the blossom, then remove surrounding weeds and grass . Dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and twice as wide. To help the tree establish, sprinkle root grow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Avoid banking the soil up around the collar of the tree.

We recommend planting Fuji Cherry trees (except multi-stem forms) with a stake and tie kit to ensure the roots are well anchored - instructions are in the planting guide. Finish by watering generously around the base.

After Care Advice For Prunus incisa The Bride Trees

Water 'The Bride' Cherry Blossom trees well and regularly through the first spring and summer, increasing in periods of hot or dry weather. In autumn, you may only need to water a little. Our Irrigation kits aid establishment.

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

Pruning Prunus incisa The Bride Trees

Although it is possible to leave your 'The Bride' Fuji Cherry tree to its own devices, if you prune it for the first few years it will create a more balanced branch framework. Prune after flowering i.e. after the petals have dropped but before the new shoot growth appears.

After two to three years, you will only need to remove any damaged or unwanted branches. The formative pruning previously carried out will have led to a healthier tree less likely to need this though. On top grafted forms, very occasionally the grafted stem may produce shoots and these should be pruned back.
