The Story

Cherry Trees are loved the world over for their clouds of pink and white blossoms that erupt to declare that spring has arrived.  In many cultures, their fleeting flowers symbolize the all-too-quickpassing of youth.  This selection is most likely a hybrid between two Japanese species of Flowering Cherry.  It originated at the nursery of a Dutchman, Albert Doorenbosin 1970.  No doubt he was struck by the plant’s distinctive, rigidly upright form—although it does get rounder with maturity (hey, it happens to the best of us).

The Details

Similar to the actual animal, this Snow Goose is a harbinger of spring! Loads of white flowers cover the branches in early spring, followed by dark green leaves. Foliage turns yellow in fall providing additional color to the copper-red peeling bark. Quite an eye-catcher!

How to Grow

Cherries have a reputation for being disease-prone and short-lived, which some of them deserve.  Snow Goose fares better than most—it has good disease resistance, and one of its two parent species has a living example in Japan that’s 800 years old!  Give this tree all-day sun and any kind of soil except one that stays wet.  It tolerates the pollution and grime of urban life and will bring its fresh snow-white blossoms to the mean streets of the city.  Its dense roots make underplanting difficult.  Tough bulbs like daffodils can cope.
