‘Autumnalis Rosea’ (pink winter cherry) is much like the Japanese ‘Jugatsu-zakura’ (‘Autumnalis’ or white winter cherry), but with clear pink, semi-double flowers. The early flowers of ‘Autumnalis Rosea’ are held tightly to the outer twigs, but the stalks are longer with later flowers; as well, the early flowers are significantly lighter in colour than those produced after midwinter. Unfortunately prone to brown rot disease, which infects flowers and new shoots in early spring.
