Lots of folks would love a flowering cherry. The question becomes, how to maximize both beauty and hardiness from amongst the bewildering array of subspecies and varieties. We've settled on Accolade to give you the best bang for your buck, as the P. sargentii side provides superior hardiness, while the P. subhirtella strain adds gorgeous splendor. In early spring, large drooping clusters of semi-double, pink blossoms cover the spreading branches will take your breath away. Disease-resistant green leaves turn shades of orange, yellow and red by fall. The breathtaking blossoms are the main event with little fruit produced for the birds. Accolade is fairly fast growing and can reach 6-7.5m (20-25') in both height and width.
