About the Mt. Fuji Flowering Cherry Tree

Elevate your landscape with the stunning beauty of the Mt. Fuji Flowering Cherry Tree, Prunus serrulata ‘Mount Fuji’. This exquisite deciduous tree is a breathtaking showstopper, adorned with early, semi-double white flowers that gracefully age to a purplish-pink hue. With a horizontal habit and reaching a height of around 20 feet, this tree delivers a picturesque charm to any garden or landscape.

The Mount Fuji Flowering Cherry tree captivates with its clusters of fragrant white flowers set against bronze-tinged new foliage. Perfect as a single specimen or lawn tree in smaller landscapes, it also creates a magnificent impact when planted in groves. As a deciduous tree, it adds a touch of elegance and shade, making it an excellent choice for various landscape designs.

Growing the Mt. Fuji Flowering Cherry Tree

Known for its umbrella-like appearance, this small upright tree boasts spreading horizontal branches and smooth reddish-brown bark, providing winter interest. Its deeply serrated, pale green leaves gradually unfold with bronze tinges, reaching lengths of up to 7 inches. Flowering from late March to April before leaf emergence, the blossoms start as pink buds and mature into fragrant, semi-double white flowers.

Thriving best in full sun with well-drained soils, the Mount Fuji Cherry is hardy from zones 5 to 8, adaptable to most soil types. Regular pruning, good air circulation, and adequate sun exposure are essential for preventing common plant problems.

Considered a front yard showstopper, this deer-resistant tree attracts pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds with its luxuriant white blossoms. Its resistance to heat, humidity, and pollution makes it an ideal choice for various landscapes, from cottage gardens to borders and Asian-inspired garden designs.
