‘Accolade’. A small, umbrella-shaped tree with fine, wide-spreading branches, usually flowering in February or March. The small, translucent flowers are semi-double and coloured an intense light pink. ‘Accolade’ is a modern (1952) English hybrid of O-yama-zakura (Prunus sargentii) and higan (spring) cherry (P. subhirtella) that is unfortunately prone to disease, especially in crowded situations.
