Prunus x ‘Extrazam’
|Height and Spread||15-20' h x 15-20' w|
|Zone||USDA 5 AHS 8|
A bold display of the double powderpuff blooms that homeowners seek out every spring. The very large flowers emerge deep pink and open to a beautiful light cherry hue. When the blooms fall from the weeping branches, coppery foliage emerges, quickly turning an appealing emerald green before going red and burgundy in autumn.
“Our nursery started growing Extraordinaire on a trial basis 10+ years ago. We have produced this tree as a top-grafted form at both 5 ½’ and 4’ heights. It easily produces a # 1 head with a first years graft. The limbs, foliage and flowers have a Kwanzan cherry look. The large, double pink flowers are borne in abundance. The fall foliage turns to burgundy colors and holds its leaves longer than other cherries. We found this selection to be a vigorous grower with a unique weeping habit.”
