Prunus serrulata ‘Taoyame’
About Prunus serrulata 'Taoyame'
Scions of this variety were sent from Japan in 1929 from a tree near the Hirano Shrine in Kyoto. Soft pink semidouble flowers contrast with a deeper pink on the backs and edges of the petals. Early leaves of a rich purplish-brown tone act as a foil to unfolding blossoms. Taoyame translates as "attractive woman."
