Prunus ‘Kanzan’

About Prunus 'Kanzan'

This popular cultivar is considered by many to be the most showy ornamental cherry. Flowering is extravagant, with pink, almost magenta double blossoms borne in hanging clusters of two to five blossoms. Cherry Walk and Cherry Esplanade provide an opulent annual display of 'Kanzan'. Until recently, this cultivar was known as 'Sekiyama'.
