|Autumnalis is loose branching and bushy with a flattened crown and delicate twigs. It grows to 30 feet high and wide. The flowers are doubles, pinkish white or white often appearing during a warm spell in winter or early spring. The form of this tree is more like the true subhirtella.
Graceful, deciduous tree that is rarely grown out as a species, but rather as a variety of the species: var. pendula, var. autumnalis, etc. This group of cherries is extremly cold and heat tolerant, and if well established, can be a long-lived ornamental. Can produce flowers in autumn in mild conditions.
