‘Kanzan’ (synonymous with ‘Kwanzan’ and ‘Sekiyama’) is a double flowered Japanese flowering cherry that is noted for its profuse and showy spring bloom. It is considered to be one of the most ornamental of the flowering cherries. It typically grows 25-30 feet tall and to 25-30 feet wide with a vase shape, ascending branching and a spreading-rounded crown. Deep pink double flowers (to 2.5 inches diameter), each with 20-30 petals, bloom in pendant clusters of 2-5 in April. Flowers bloom just before and as the leaves emerge. Ovate, serrate, dark green leaves (to 5″ long). New leaves may be tinged with bronze-red. Fall color is yellow to orange-bronze. Plants are sterile and do not produce fruit. Zones 5 to 9.
