Little pruning is required, aside from selective removal of branches to enhance form if desired. Blooms on old wood; prune only after blooming. Adaptable to most well-drained soils but do not plant in hot, dry sites.
If you’ve always wanted a showy flowering cherry but lacked the space, plant Zuzu® Prunus incisa. This ornamental shrubby cherry is a dazzling mass of pink powderpuff blooms in spring, and it reaches 5-8’ tall and just 3-5′ wide. Dense branching gives it a lush, full look.
