Prunus serrulata 'Shirotae'

Early pink buds open to very fragrant, semi-double clusters of pendulous, white flowers that fade to purplish-pink on horizontal branches. While not technically a weeping tree, this strongly lateral growth gives the tree the appearance of a flat umbrella. While the original name in Japanese means "white cloth", it was released in the US in the early 20th century under the name Mt. Fuji.

On this Gisela 5 rootstock, the tree will grow to only 10-12' tall. Prefers evenly moist soil in full sun conditions with good air circulation.

Hardy to USDA Zone: 5

Mature Height: 10'-12' (Dwarf)

Sun: Full Sun

Bloom Time: Early Spring

Rootstock: Gisela 5 

Size: Dwarf (4'-5')

Added three more Mt. Fuji's

Our two five-year old Fuji's are slowly growing into a horizontal, umbrella shape, just right for accenting rather than hiding our front yard ocean view. Since they are clearly going to be relatively short, and because we love their huge, pale pink blossoms in spring and their orange/pink autumn leaves, we just bought three more to underscore our back yard mountain view as well. I think they're best in a short row, but one tree would eventually be spectacular as a stand-alone as well.
