Okame Cherry (flowering ornamental)
Prunus incisa x campanulata 'Okame'
A small, attractive, well-formed flowering tree that is both vigorous, and floriferous. Highly adaptable. Carmine buds start just ahead of forsythias peak in a brilliant pink cloud and still have color when forsythia is forgotten.
Okame wil provide excellent patio shade in the summer. Fall will bring out beautiful strong yellow shades with subdued orange in the leaves.
