‘Kiku-zakura’ (chrysanthemum cherry). A rarely cultivated Sato-zakura (Japanese village cherry), now nearly lost to cultivation in Vancouver. ‘Kiku-zakura’ is known for its bright, deep pink, fully double flowers that appear in April. Each bloom is composed of more than one hundred separate overlapping, pointed petals, the overall effect of which is more like a miniature pom-pom than a typical chrysanthemum flower. The trees are usually small and narrowly upright, eventually becoming more open and spreading with age.
