‘Atsumori’. A rare, diminutive cherry tree related to the early-flowering higan (spring) cherries (Prunus subhirtella); however, this cultivar blooms a month later, in mid April, and is less disease prone. The button-like, pale pink flowers are about 3 cm in diameter, fully double and generously produced. The cultivar is named for the young Japanese poet and courtier Atsumori, who, at the age of 15, was killed in a battle during the Genpei Wars of the1180s. This tragic tale is commemorated in traditional Japanese Noh and Kabuki theatre.
