Prunus 'Hally Jolivette'

1st May 2006

I got it as a small cutting many years ago, and it has prospered in the front garden. There are a few cherries that prosper here, and this has been my favourite. Humidity, rain and canker have damaged a lot of the traditional Japanese Cherries.

This pretty tree was raised by Karl Sax, who was Director of the Arnold Arboretum between 1946 and 1954.
In the 1940's he made a series of crosses between P. subhirtella and P. x yedoensis and then backcrossed the progeny with P. subhirtella. He selcted one of the resulting trees and named it after his wife.
