‘Ichiyo’ (one leaf). A Sato-zakura (Japanese village cherry) known from before 1850. The name “one leaf” refers to the single phylloid (leafy) style at the centre of most flowers. ‘Ichiyo’ is a robust, disease-free cultivar that is sometimes confused with ‘Shirofugen’, as both are large trees with double, light pink flowers. However, ‘Ichiyo’ blooms a few weeks earlier and has fewer petals in each of its flowers.
