Prunus serrulata var. spontanea
About Prunus serrulata var. spontanea
Called the hill cherry or yamazakura, this cherry's introduction to the West from Japan in 1914 is attributed to the plant collector E.H. Wilson. Unlike other P. serrulata forms, this cherry is not considered a cultivated variety and it can vary greatly, especially in flower color—from white to pale pink.
