A peach of a tree…albeit a little hairy

Few trees can hold the title of the earliest to flower and the latest to flower…except Prunus x subhirtella ‘Autumnalis Rosea’. This amazing tree is in full flower now at JLBG after gracing us with a superb show in late fall. Prunus x subhirtella is a group of flowering hybrids between the Japanese Prunus incisa and itosakura. The nothospecific epithet “subhirtella” means “a little bit hairy”.
