After it drops its leaves you will be delighted to see it flower.
Quite a surprise as most everything else in your area is beginning to go dormant for the winter.
Each time it flowers the Autumn Cherry’s blossoms go through a series of color changes.
The buds are a dark pink which soon bloom a soft pink.
As the flowers age they turn a brilliant snow white.
The Autumn Cherry can flower on and off during the milder fall and winter months, but its real show happens in the spring.
When the leaves emerge in the spring the Autumn Cherry will positively explode with clouds of semi double, soft pink flowers that slowly age to a show stopping pure white.
Two seasons of flowering a year is very rare for small flowering trees, making the Autumn Cherry quite special.
You will also be proud to share with friends and family that this tree is one of the varieties enjoyed at the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D C each year.
