Prunus serrulata ‘Ukon’

About Prunus serrulata 'Ukon'

This culitvar produces an abundance of large, semi-double flowers of a yellowish or pale green color (ukon for "turmeric," refers to its unusual color). A hint of pink on the petals adds to the drama of this attractive cherry. Like many of the Prunus serrulata cultivars, 'Ukon' was introduced to western gardeners in the early 20th century.
