Coming home after visiting Japanese Gardens can leave you feeling inspired to bring a small bit of feng shui to your gardens. A great way to do that is by adding a Mount Fuji Japanese Flowering Cherry tree (Prunus serrulata 'Mount Fuji') to the landscape. It's classic ornamental cherry tree look is exactly what any garden needs!
Luxurious blossoms of delicate white burst forth each spring on the branches of Mount Fuji. Larger than any of the other cherry tree varieties.

When the tree isn't in bloom, it is still quite beautiful with its dark green lance-shaped leaves blanketing the crown.
While the Mount Fuji Japanese Flowering Cherry tree doesn't produce the fruit as we know it, it does grow cherry like berries that birds love to snack on after flowering for the season. If you're an avid birdwatcher, then you'll want to put this tree somewhere you can marvel at their different colors.
This tree has qualities for all! Not a bird enthusiast? No problem! The semi-double flowers also bring with them a heavenly fragrance each spring that'll have you absolutely in love. Japanese Cherry Blossom is a perfume often sought after and you could have it growing right in your front yard!
