Okame is small ornamental cherry tree, featuring a mass of pretty shell-pink single flowers.
In autumn the leaves take on strong autumn tints.
The tree grows with an upright habit, spreading somewhat as it matures. It remains small, and is likely to reach a mature height of 2.5m or so.
Okame is unusual amongst the flowering cherries in that it often produces a crop of small dark cherries – not palatable for humans, but useful for birds.
