Standing proud at a notable 20-40 ft, with its broad-leaved, umbrella-shaped canopy, this spectacle of nature can take from 5 to 10 years to bloom, lending to its unique allure.
The bark ranges from dark brown to purplish-brown with oblong grains, older trees possessing rough cracks. The annual branches are light brown or grayish with large swollen skin. The flowering period of this species brings forth an enchanting display from late March to mid-April. Its flowers are sizeable, measuring 25-35 mm in diameter, adorning its branches with delicate white to pale pink petals.
Each leaf of the Prunus serrulata 'Spontanea' is oblong to ovate with sharp serrations lining the margins, growing 5 to 12 cm long.
