Prunus incisa 'Mikinori' is a large shrub or small tree, with small, toothed mid-green leaves which turn to bright red and orange in the autumn - a display that might rival the spring flowering. The small flowers, produced in great abundance, are pink in bud, opening to white with a dark pink eye, and will emrge from bare stems before the foliage, making for a most delicate and elegant show in the spring in the garden.
Prunus incisa 'Mikinori', named after the famous Japanese botanist Ogisu Mikinori, is one of the so-called Mount Fuji cherries, on account of their distribution in the wild being centred around Japan's most famous mountain. Prunus incisa never grow very large and so are well suited to smaller gardens, as well as offering 2 or 3 seasons on interest with its lovely flowering and foliage.
Prunus incisa 'Mikinori' is fully hardy and easy to grow in full sun or light shade on moist and well drained soil. H: 5-6m
