Prunus x subhirtella ‘Autumnalis Rosea’ is a small tree that begins to flower in November, producing a scattering of pink, bell-shaped, semi-double flowers that last through until March. Out of flower the tree is quite a robust dark shape, and often has good autumn colour. This makes a good specimen tree for smaller gardens.
