Erect, vase-shaped, spreading grower. In early-spring, becomes smothered in fragrant, blush-pink, single blossoms, from deep-pink buds. An avenue of this cherry in full flower is an unforgettable sight. Yellow and orange autumn leaves. Excellent street tree. Prunus yedoensis ‘Awanui’ (Yoshino Cherry) grows to 6m (H) x 5m (W) in 10 years.
